The Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality (NCF) is a grassroots organization, working to ensure dignity and a shared society. NCF was established in 1997 by a group of Arab and Jewish residents of the Negev-Naqab who were alarmed by the government’s discriminatory policies and practices towards its Arab-Bedouin citizens.
Today, NCF is the only joint Arab-Jewish organization focused specifically on the problems facing the Negev-Naqab, and it calls for justice for its Bedouin residents. Our vision is that all residents of the Negev-Naqab live in dignity and share a society in which all residents enjoy human rights, equality, and justice.
At risk daily of having their homes demolished, left with no water, electricity, or any other basic services, four courageous Arab-Bedouin women have documented their lives, as the State of Israel forced them and their families–who are Israeli citizens, to say goodbye to everything they call home.
