Tikun Olam: fighting discrimination and racism for equality and pluralism
– the work of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC)

Language: English

Session: While I have completed my work with IRAC in May 2017, I will attempt to provide a brief overview of this important organization and the significant work in does to promote pluralism and human rights in Israel, with a focus on the fight against racism.

Bio: I am a human rights lawyer and international expert on human trafficking, with almost 20 years international experience mainly with the UN. However, from 2015 to 2017, I worked as a lawyer for IRAC and managed the anti-racism portfolio, fighting against incitement to racism and violence, especially incitement against Arabs, often by Jewish religious figures.
