FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 27, 2009 / CONTACT: Ori Nir - (202) 408-9898; onir@peacenow.org

Washington, D.C.-- Americans for Peace Now (APN) today congratulated J Street, the political arm of America's pro-Israel peace movement, for its successful First National Conference.

"J Street succeeded to attract and mobilize a large number of peace activists, creating a historic moment for our movement."

"It is incumbent on all of us who care about Israel and care about peace to build on this success, and to generate more momentum towards a two-state solution," said Debra DeLee, APN's president and CEO.

"Americans who believe in Israel and believe in peace got a chance to see and feel that their movement has significant political muscle to drive change in Washington," DeLee said.

APN, America's leading Jewish organization advocating for Middle East peace, is proud to be a partner organization of J Street's inaugural conference.
