Women in Black is an international movement started by Israeli women in 1988 to protest Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. In Knoxville, we have held Women in Black vigils every Tuesday since April 2002 -- standing in the heat, rain, cold, and snow as well as all the beautiful weather! We stand in solidarity with our Israeli sisters who have been speaking out for more than 27 years against Israel’s illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories. We express our concern for a just peace between Israel and Palestine and ask our government to use its power and influence to end Israel’s illegal occupation. Knoxville Area Women in Black supports the BDS Boycotts, Divestment, Sanctions) movement.
