Map & Directions

With Israel at a political crossroads, how can we work for a more hopeful and positive future? Join Democratic Union (Meretz) Knesset member Tamar Zandberg to hear what the future holds for Israeli society, and her unique role as a leading voice for equality, democracy and human rights.

In a conversation with journalist Deb Whitmont, Zandberg will address the challenges to Israeli democracy and the role that political parties, grassroots activists, the judicial system and everyday Israelis play in promoting democracy, equality and coexistence.

Zandberg, a former academic, was a leader of 2011’s social justice protests in Israel and a member of Tel Aviv’s city council before entering the Knesset for the Meretz party in 2013.

She is a longtime social and feminist activist, passionately advocating for human rights, sustainable urban planning and transport, affordable housing, religious pluralism, women rights and the legalisation of cannabis.
