Highlights from NIF’s 2024 Guardian of Democracy

18 April 2024

On Sunday, April 14, NIF hosted our annual Guardian of Democracy event in-person in San Francisco, and livestreamed for our global audience. At this time of great pain and uncertainty, we gathered to stand in solidarity with the activists on the ground in Israel who are working toward a shared future of peace, democracy, and safety for all. Please see below for some of the highlights from this important event.
