Dugrinet, whose name comes from the Arabic word meaning "straight forward", serves 1.2 million men, women and children of the Galilee, roughly half Jewish and half Arab. What makes the organization unique is that it is the only bilingual news source for the Galilee, and the only community-run project that combines online media and in-the-community initiatives. In addition, the organization creates strategic partnerships and builds a network of organizations and activists, serving as a platform and meeting place for all people of the Galilee. In this way, Dugrinet strives, with a great degree of sensitivity, to open up issues for dialogue and issues specific to living in the periphery that are often overlooked by national media, and which are rarely discussed by Arabs and Jews together. They strive to create a strong regional community in Galilee, which encourages in-depth dialogue and activism on the basis of familiarity and critical thinking through their work.
Dugrinet believes that the Jews and Arabs in the Galilee have a mutual interest in overcoming obstacles to getting to know each other, finding out what they have in common, and becoming involved in making the whole region a safer, healthier, and happier place for all.
