The Parents Circle - Families Forum (PCFF) is a joint Palestinian Israeli organization of over 600 families, all of whom have lost a close family member as a result of the prolonged conflict. Joint activities have shown that the reconciliation between individuals and nations is possible and it is this insight that they are trying to pass on to both sides of the conflict. Moreover, the PCFF has concluded that the process of reconciliation between nations is a prerequisite to achieving a sustainable peace. The organization thus utilizes all resources available in education, public meetings and the media, to spread these ideas.

MediaCentral is a Jerusalem center providing support services for journalists based in or visiting Israel, the Palestinian territories and the region. The media has a difficult job researching and reporting the news at the best of times and in the most friendly of environments. In a foreign country, in the midst of often-violent conflict, a journalist faces numerous obstacles to efficient and effective reporting. MediaCentral, therefore, has been set up as a non-profit, independent, media-liaison service organization offering what are perhaps the three most important elements in journalism: information, access, materials. Their goal is to ensure comprehensive, impartial coverage of Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict and the region.
Honest Reporting monitors the news for bias, inaccuracy, or other breach of journalistic standards in coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict. It also facilitates accurate reporting for foreign journalists covering the region. Honest Reporting is not aligned with any government or political party or movement. Honest Reporting believes that a fully informed public is essential to progress and understanding in conflict resolution. It is not enough to correct inaccurate reporting and expose breaches of journalistic ethics. HonestReporting, through its Media Central project, provides support services for journalists based in or visiting Israel, the Palestinian territories, and the region to insure the free flow of information.
The Geneva Initiative provides realistic and achievable solutions on all issues, based on previous official negotiations, international resolutions, the Quartet Roadmap, Clinton Parameters, Bush Vision, and Arab Peace Initiative.

The Geneva Initiative NGOs educate and campaign that it is in the best interest of Israelis and Palestinians to negotiate directly in order to reach a realistic, dignified, and sustainable 2-state solution in which both peoples can build a brighter future, as is embodied in the model Geneva Accord.
