Americans for Peace Now (APN) and Brit Tzedek v’Shalom (BTvS) were both American organizations aimed at promoting a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In light of their similar missions, the two organizations decided to explore a merger. The Lodestar Foundation provided a grant to help fund a consultant to assist in the exploration. Although the merger did not materialize, BTvS subsequently merged into J Street Educational Fund, a transaction for which Lodestar also provided support.
