WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Mission Statement: To empower individuals and organizations to take responsibility for the protection of Israel.
Rationale: Spurred on by social media, young people are increasingly siding with Palestinian extremists and even questioning Israel and the Jewish people's right to exist.
What we do: Video Activism was created to counter the intense media bias against Israel through the creation of short videos, and to cultivate young Jewish leaders to advocate for Israel and the Jewish people.

Support the ONLY Israel advocacy video organization
Video Activism is the only program that trains young Jewish leaders to create and spread pro-Israel videos. We harness the power of film and disseminate it through YouTube and other social media platforms. Video Activism provides the training, strategy and education that empowers individuals to make the case for Israel. At such a critical time when social media sites have become inundated with anti-Jewish and anti-Israel ideas, it is critical to strengthen the younger generation and give them effective tools to advocate for Israel.
Modern Israel advocacy organizations are highly effective educators of Jewish students on campus. However, they do not have the expertise to empower their students to optimally spread information online and create positive change for Israel. That is where Video Activism comes in. Video Activism has taught over 600 students from organizations including Hasbara Fellowships, Taglit Birthright, the David Project, CAMERA, UJA Toronto, NGO Monitor, J-Internship, Genesis Challenge, Akiva, AEPI, B’nai Akiva, Nefesh B’Nefesh, Bar Ilan University, and Onward Israel.
Additionally, the Video Activism staff produces high quality videos, graphics, blogs and more, for a myriad of our smaller projects. Our philosophy of providing student skill building, high quality resources for organizations and leveraging social media makes us an essential partner for both new and well established organizations.
By supporting Video Activism you are supporting Israel.
The message of hate against Israel and Jews is growing at a rapid rate. The only way to counter that hate is to fight back and spread the truth.
The threat to the Jewish people and Israel is real. If we wait any longer there might not even be a battle to fight.
Please contribute to Israel’s existence. Please contribute to Video Activism.
