This blog is a means to explore the conflicts in identity, and the ways in which my identity influences my activism in Israel-Palestine and, in turn, how the conflict shapes my identities.
I’m Becca Strober, an American-Israeli activist. I am an active member and organizer with All That’s Left: Anti-Occupation Collective.
I turned to blogging a few years ago as a tool to help me process my changing political beliefs as I went from a mainstream, ‘pro-Israel’, former lone-soldier to an anti-occupation and queer activist here in Israel-Palestine.
I work full time for a non-profit that facilitates Arab-Jewish partnership and joint activism. I previously worked for the human rights organization, Gisha, as well as Mahapach-Taghir, an organization that also engages in bi-national activism. All views written here are my own.
Groups I’m involved in:
All That’s Left: All That’s Left is a collective unequivocally opposed to the occupation and committed to building the diaspora angle of resistance.
Hoshen: Hoshen, the Hebrew acronym for “Education & Change”, is the education and information center of the LGBTQ community in Israel. It is a nationwide, non-profit organization whose purpose is to fight stereotypes regarding sexual orientation and gender identity through personal stories of volunteers.
