We work to amplify the voices of moderates and push back against the rising tide of extremist voices poisoning the political and social discourse.
We aspire towards a state of Israel led by a government that believes in:
2 – The necessity of a diplomatic agreement that will bring about a two-state solution and ensure Israel’s security;
3 – Achieving social and economic justice, equal opportunities and civil solidarity; and
4 – Eradicating racism and discrimination in all its forms.
As a grassroots movement, we work daily across Israel—door by door, town by town—setting up stalls in public centers, organizing house meetings, events, demonstrations, and protest vigils. We believe in the importance of an engaged civil society, which is why our activists are professionally trained on a range of topics, including digital media, activism, and current affairs.
Our digital community, “Darkenu Connect,” is an online group whose members combat the violent and inciting discourse on the Internet through creative and moderate means. The aim is to allow for the moderate majority to find its voice on the Internet once more and provide meaningful ways for Israelis to take action.
“Darkenu Youth” is the place where new leaders are forged. Young people, under the age of 18, from the political and social spectrum make up this core group within Darkenu dedicated to championing our moderate values to the next generation. Darkenu Youth organize their own events and activities up and down the country, including setting up information booths, hosting panel discussions, and hosting training sessions that provide leadership tools.
Darkenu does not receive funding from foreign governments or political parties. All of our resources come from donations generously made by private individuals and family foundations.
Darkenu. Love Israel. Take Action.
