ACRI Joins Forces With “Israeli Children”


Israeli Children, the leading Israeli organization fighting against the deportation of the children of migrant workers, will be incorporated into the Association for Civil Rights in Israel.


Under the leadership of Rotem Ilan and Yonatan Shaham, and supported by a dedicated group of volunteers, Israeli Children has chalked up unprecedented achievements in its short existence. The group has managed to provide support and care to hundreds of families in need, whilst leading a vigorous and effective public campaign to change the public discourse on the rights of migrant workers and asylum seekers in Israel.


As the largest and oldest human rights organization in Israel, ACRI is proud to have been working to defend human rights for over forty years in a broad spectrum of arenas. In recent years, we have vastly expanded the scope of our activities in a number of key areas: spearheading campaigns against anti-democratic legislation in the Knesset, in the public arena and in the courts; educating against racism; expanding our activities in the field of social rights; protecting freedom of expression; defending the rights of Bedouin citizens in the Negev, and more.


Attorney Oded Feller, Director of ACRI’s Citizenship and Residency Program, has overseen a vast expansion of the range of activities in this field to deal with topical and challenging human rights issues including immigration and status, rights of migrant workers and the rights of asylum seekers and refugees.


Many complex challenges still lie ahead of us. In a reality of limited resources, the integration of Israeli Children into ACRI is an opportunity to expand the scope of our activities in a worthy and important field whilst maintaining a focus on efficiency and effective action.


Now is the time to get on board!
