2019 Personal and Community Security Index
Arab citizens constituted 65% of murders in Israel in 2019 – more than three times higher than their representation in Israel’s population. This is a statistic from the report on "Violence, Crime and Policing in Arab Society," revealing a grim picture of the crisis in Arab communities.
With Arab communities in Israel facing a crisis of crime and violence, Safe Communities works to mediate between Arab community leadership and the institutions tasked with ensuring the safety of all Israeli citizens. Our program focuses on building trust between Arab leadership and the Israeli Police, and on finding solutions to the root causes of this issue.
Challenging the Nation State Law
We are beginning to see the impact of this new legislation which gives exclusive rights of national self determination to the Jewish people, and demotes the status of the Arabic language in Israel. We are working in partnership with other civil society organizations to raise awareness about the law and to fight against it.
