About the Palestine Community Advocacy Network
PCAN – the Palestine Community Advocacy Network, is a new national organization in Palestine, founded by committed professionals with more than ten years of experience through MMEP in the field of rights based community practice (RBCP), which has been employed to develop several rights-based community practice centers across Nablus and East Jerusalem. They are working to expand the rights-based model in Palestine, building capacity and resources to create engaged citizens, bringing together academic institutions, professionals, local businesses and regular people to work together for community benefit, rooted in rights.
