Social and Economic Justice
Equality requires not just human and civil rights, but also equality of opportunity: freedom from poverty, access to education, employment and affordable housing, the right to basic public services and health care. The NIF works to ensure social and economic justice for all Israelis, the unemployed and those on low wages, single parents, the elderly, Israeli Arabs, new immigrants and Mizrachim. We support groups that campaign for their rights and work for equality of opportunity for all.
