Eyewitness Accounts, Photos, and More

Every delegation is a unique human journey. Each trip is an experiment in building transnational solidarity based on real human connections. Every experience is real, honest, heartfelt, and genuine. Since 2001, these have been the values that inform our work.

EARLIER Delegations

Eyewitness Palestine was previously known as Interfaith Peace-Builders (IFPB). IFPB began in 2001 as a project of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and became an independent not-for-profit organization in 2008.

We changed our name to Eyewitness Palestine in 2018 so that we could better serve the movement for Palestinian freedom. Read eyewitness accounts and view photos from previous delegations on the IFPB website.
