"The Future of Israeli Democracy" with MK Tamar Zandberg Receiving the "Steven Glass Truth to Power Award"
Date and Time
Israeli Member of Knesset Tamar Zandberg (Democratic Union) will be honoured with the ‘Steven Glass Truth to Power Award’.
Zandberg, a former academic, was a leader of 2011’s social justice protests in Israel and a member of Tel Aviv’s city council before entering the Knesset for the Meretz party in 2013. She was the party’s leader from 2018-19, including the April 2019 election. She was reelected in September’s election on the Democratic Union ticket.
The award is named for NIF Australia’s vice-president and founding board member Steven Glass who passed away in February. Throughout his life, Steven was a fierce supporter of social justice, human rights, liberal democracy and equality in Australia, Israel and around the world.
In choosing Tamar Zandberg to receive the ‘Steven Glass Truth to Power Award’, NIF Australia is honouring her leading role in promoting human rights and democracy in Israeli society.
In a conversation with journalist Deb Whitmont, Zandberg will address the challenges to Israeli democracy and the role that political parties, grassroots activists, the judicial system and everyday Israelis play in promoting democracy, equality and coexistence.
