The Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace & Justice (RFC) is a grassroots, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that conducts and supports programs that foster connections between people, that build understanding, respect, and appreciation for differences, and that promote cooperation within and between local and global communities. The foundation encourages and supports grassroots efforts in pursuit of human rights and social, economic, and environmental justice, which we view as prerequisites for world peace. Continuing the work begun and envisioned by our daughter, Rachel Corrie, our initial emphasis has been on Israel/Palestine.
The Rachel Corrie Foundation is gearing up once again to support projects in Gaza: the Rachel Corrie Gaza Sport Initiative; the Samira Project (with MECA and Madison-Rafah Sister City Project partners), providing academic and psychological support for Gaza kids; and the Palestinian Cultural Palace Youth Performances.
Through the years, many in our community have demonstrated support and generosity for these efforts, they can’t happen without you. Members of the community can join together once again in sustaining these grassroots projects. Please mark and celebrate Rachel’s 40th birthday by standing strong with RCF and with the youth and families of Gaza.
