Mission & Vision

We vision an emancipatory Palestinian society that is inclusive of differences, sexual and gender diversity and fights against all forms of oppression and discrimination, locally and globally.


Aswat’s Mission

Our mission is to empower queer Palestinian and Arab women, and stimulate an alternative discourse that promotes the struggle for sexual rights and freedoms with a community-based and grassroots focus.


Aswat’s Vision

We envision a Palestinian society that respects the sexual and gender diversity of all its members and understands its struggle as intersectional against all forms of oppression and discrimination. By building a vibrant, mature, strong, and proactive cadre of young feminist queer and trans leaders, Aswat hopes to challenge the existing mainstream views and attitudes about sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity in the Palestinian society and regionally.
