APPLY NOW FOR THE 2018 FELLOWSHIP

NSL’s mission is to equip a new generation of Palestinian and Israeli leaders with the tools to become more effective agents of change through activism at home and narrative advocacy in Washington DC.  By changing the old story of futility, NSL Fellows create new stories of possibility for the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.

New Story Leadership Inc. (NSL) is an American based 501(c)3 registered in the State of Maryland (EIN # 27-1076407) was founded in 2009.

When combatants decide to share a personal story, one that comes out of the authority of their own experience, not parotting some tribal or religious orthodoxy, they begin to dismantle the wall of separation. They turn a wall into a window.  Brick by brick, story by story, light comes through.  Underneath all the disagreements and bitterness, a shared human story  gradually emerges. Because the stories of war and propaganda work by  stripping the “other” of their humanity, sharing a story from the heart  becomes a profound act of resistance. NSL creates a Listening culture where stories are treated as gifts,  and where through a narrative way,  people can reclaim the capacity that war has stolen from them, the power to give people their humanity back.
