As a part of our advocacy work, the Israel Religious Action Center partners with many organizations that share our ideals.
IRAC is a member of several coalitions:
The Coalition Against Racism is a group of over 20 Israeli organizations dedicated to fighting racism in Israel. The Coalition's goals are primarily to help change public opinion against racism and to lobby against racist proposals. The Coalition organizes conferences in the Knesset attended regularly by various MKs from different parties as well as issues letters to Israel's legal system to prosecute against those employed by the state who abuse their position to incite racism.
The Struggle Against Darkness is a coalition of Jewish organizations that came together to combat extremism and racism in Israel, particularly that which comes from groups who claim to speak on behalf of Judaism.
IRAC's Legal and Public Policy Department participate with several other organizations in creating a new coalition called Atid Meshutaf - Shared Future, which focuses on establishing common ground between Israel's Jewish and Arab societies in order to advance toward a more cooperative future.
