Adalah’s Emergency COVID-19 Project: Demanding Equal Treatment and Non-Discrimination for the Arab Minority Through the Israeli Legal System
Adalah - The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, Isreal

ABOUT: Adalah’s Emergency COVID-19 project uses legal action before Israeli courts and state authorities, together with media outreach, to obtain remedies for discrimination faced by the Arab minority, around 20% of the population of Israel. From the outset, the Israeli Government neglected the needs of Arab citizens in areas like access to health services, distance learning, public information, economic support, and the right to privacy. Adalah has undertaken over 40 legal actions, including 15 Supreme Court petitions, and achieved positive legal results, including the provision of COVID-19 testing, more equitable allocation of public funds for Arab towns, and civil liberties protections.

Adalah, this project is absolutely amazing and clearly very impactful given the laws and government services you were able to implement. I would like to know more about the challenges you faced and any lessons learned on how to hold government accountable for discriminatory policies and ensure that all were offered fair access to important services?
