Who we are

Youth of Sumud is a grassroots political formation that resists Israeli settler colonialism and advocates for a free and liberated Palestine. As our communities face elimination, we stand in solidarity as our families have for generations to remain on our ancestral lands. Unlike other organizations, this means we are physically present with at-risk families when they are facing immense pressure and violence.

Being on the frontlines resisting Israeli violence and indigenous erasure, our founding members have been arrested, beaten, and imprisoned while standing in solidarity with the most vulnerable.

Our advocacy approach is rooted in dismantling the laws that underpin Israeli settler-colonialism.

Facing Israeli settler attacks, we make sure shepherds, school children and families aren't alone.

Why nonviolent resistance to dispossession and violence matters

Youth of Sumud is a grassroots formation representing the continuation of the Palestinian nonviolent resistance to Israeli state violence and ethnic cleansing. We are a group of activists following in the footsteps of the generations that have organized to stay on their lands.
