American Friends of the Parents Circle

American Friends of the Parents Circle-Families Forum shares the human side
of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public

The Parents Circle Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian
organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond
is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict.
But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation.
