Parents Against Child Detention (PACD) is a grassroots Israeli organization, established in 2018 by a group of Israeli parents deeply concerned about the harm Palestinian children endure under Israeli occupation. PACD works to raise awareness within the Israeli public about the phenomena of the mass detention of Palestinian children, to be a pressure group that will pursue a policy change and eventually influence decision-makers.
