The Free Palestine Movement (FPM) is a California-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a human rights organization, have several working groups inside and outside the U.S., are not affiliated with any other organization(s)*, and comply with U.S. and international law.
Our mission is to challenge Israeli policies and actions that deny Palestinians their human rights, and in particular the right of unfettered access to all of Palestine. We adhere to the principles of non-violence in direct actions that exercise Palestinian rights in defiance of restrictions imposed by Israeli authorities. We partner with other organizations in projects that are consistent with our mission statement and points of unity.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, U.S. tax identification number 20-5516191, authorized by the Internal Revenue Service to receive tax-exempt donations for human rights advocacy.
The purpose of Free Palestine Movement is to defend and advocate for the human rights of all Palestinians, and in particular the right of access to all of Palestine. We propose to support these rights by defying barriers imposed by Israeli and international authorities upon travel and trade to, from and within Palestine for Palestinians and persons invited by Palestinians, such as visitors, human rights observers, humanitarian aid workers, journalists, merchants or others, and to impose pressure and sanctions upon any parties that deny such rights.
We are an accredited NGO of the United Nations.
• Regardless of some media reports and claims, there is no connection or working relationship between our California-based Free Palestine Movement and Yasser Kashlak’s “Free Palestine Movement” which is a completely separate entity located in Lebanon.
