Mothers Against Violence Israel (MAVI) are an Israeli network of women activists opposing the occupation and Israeli militarism from a feminine maternal perspective, training Israeli women to form local chapters of resistance and influence family and community members to refuse to participate in military service in the occupied territories.
Mothers Against Violence Israel is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the occupation. We advocate for peace and stability, and we strongly believe in the need for non-violent solutions to conflict. Our long-term goal is to help create a world where all people, regardless of their background, can live in peace and security.
We encourage Israelis to join us in our efforts to create a better future for all. A central pillar of the current Israeli government is a fascist party led by West Bank settlers, and many elements of its legislative agenda are designed to facilitate the occupation regime in the West Bank. Many Israelis who identify as centrist liberals now realize that without an end to the military occupation of the Palestinians there will be no democracy in Israel. Join us in peaceful action to oppose violence and bring democracy and peace to Israel.
