Every year, the Telos Group brings to the United States a select group of Israeli and Palestinian civil society leaders, human rights advocates, opinion shapers, and social entrepreneurs in order to introduce authentic voices from the ground into the American conversation about the Holy Land.
In addition to meeting with policy makers and colleagues in the American advocacy community, these speakers also visit a variety of local interest groups, university campuses, and faith communities, where they share their stories and often build lasting relationships with everyday Americans who might otherwise never encounter an Israeli or Palestinian. In a real sense, these speaking tours bring the human realities of the Holy Land to people who may never visit that part of the world, but who nevertheless have great influence over its future.
These speaking tours - collectively organized under the banner of our Project Engage program - include but are not confined to those cities where the Telos Group is actively encouraging the development of genuinely pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace movements.
