Robi Damelin and The Parents Circle–Families Forum

Our guest is from The Parents Circle-Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization that includes over 600 families who have lost a member to the conflict

We’re back this week with our one-on-one series, Ground Report, where we sit down with an activist to have a conversation about who they are, what motivates them, and what kind of future they imagine for the region. Listen here:

This week’s guest is Robi Damelin from an organization called The Parents Circle–Families Forum. It’s a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization that includes over 600 bereaved families, all of whom have lost an immediate family member to the conflict. They believe reconciliation — reckoning with one another’s pain —  must be a part of any sustainable, peaceful outcome in this region. Just hours before their biggest event of the year, The Joint Memorial, we sat down with Robi to hear about her personal story of loss and her journey to find reconciliation.
