Leslie Nathanson Juris Leadership Fund

Leslie Nathanson Juris was a founding Creativity for Peace Board member who served from 2006 to 2010. As an emeritus Board member she continues to play an active role as mentor, advisor, fund- and friend-raiser.

In 2010, in recognition of Leslie's extraordinary contributions, the Board of Directors established the Leslie Nathanson Juris Leadership Fund to support innovative leadership training for our young women in Palestine and Israel—programs that develop our participants' skills and influence.

In its four-year history the fund has supported projects such as:

  • Dialogue workshops with young Arab and Jewish women from Acco, Israel, facilitated by Creativity for Peace Young Leaders
  • Transforming Conflict workshops with young American women, developed and facilitated by Young Leaders
  • Training for Young Leaders to work as dialogue facilitators, project managers, and public speakers
