Partners for Progressive Israel (formerly Meretz USA) is a progressive Zionist US non-profit organization that educates Americans about, and promotes the issues of, civil rights, peace, pluralism and democracy in Israel.
Partners for Progressive Israel supports a genuine peace between the State of Israel and its Palestinian neighbors based on a negotiated two state solution along the lines set forth in the Geneva Initiative of 2003.
Partners for Progressive Israel supports full civil and human rights for Israeli citizens, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, gender, national origin, or sexual orientation. These ideals of peace, pluralism, equality and justice can be found in the values of prophetic Judaism and the dreams of the Zionist pioneers, and are enshrined in Israel's Declaration of Independence as the basic values upon which the State of Israel was founded.
