We need your help. Rebuilding Alliance is working with constituents and holding Zoom briefings to ask Congress to halt evictions against Palestinians in Jerusalem. Join a remarkable team to strategize, develop templates, and call Congress.
Our Advocacy team updates Senators and Representatives re. Palestinian homes and villages at risk. We mentor constituents who learn how to cultivate their ongoing relationship with their Congressional staff. It works! Our Contact Congress program is what has kept Palestinian villages like al-Aqaba, Susiya and al-Khan al-Ahmar standing.
This opportunity is an excellent next step to build your career in public policy, government, journalism, publishing, communications, or even event planning. We will teach you how to use a variety of advocacy software tools.
The ideal candidate enjoys working as part of team, doing research, making phone calls, scheduling, and social media, pays attention to technical details, is willing to learn about community-directed policy change, and is keenly interested in peace, justice, and the Middle East. In addition, you must be able to handle multi-faceted projects, have excellent writing skills, be determined to get busy speakers to send you their bios on time, and be able to process audience registration data. Furthermore, a candidate must be motivated, self- directed, able to meet deadlines, and work well both individually and as part of a team.
We're especially interested in candidates who would like to stay with this for at least a year. Besides this campaign, there are many other advocacy needs that require Congress's attention.
If you are interested in joining our advocacy team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with: (1) your cover letter describing why you are the right person for this position, (2) a resume, and (3) 3 references.

Rebuilding Alliance is dedicated to advancing equal rights for the Palestinian people through education, advocacy, and support that assures Palestinian families the right to a home, schooling, economic security, safety, and a promising future.
We learned early-on that to build in war-torn communities one must partner locally with non-governmental organizations that hold the trust of the local community and maintain the highest standards of fiscal and personal integrity.
Everyone who works at Rebuilding Alliance is committed to building peace and justice through programs that make a tangible difference and together, we do our best to make RA a great place to work. Many who have joined RA as interns or in entry-level jobs have gone on to their dream-job or pursued advanced degrees.
One of our past interns wrote the following:
"I always talk about interning with Rebuilding Alliance as one of my most important, challenging and formative work experiences, especially when I'm in interviews. You asked and expected big things of me right away, and I'm so grateful for that - coordinating a teleconference series, making phone calls to important peacekeepers, offering insights in team meetings, updating our internet presence. These are skills that I value so highly, and that I'm sure will be so important as I enter this industry that is entirely new to me. I would also like to stay in touch with you and Rebuilding Alliance and help in any way I can in the coming years, whether through donations or volunteering my time when I'm back in the Bay Area."
