Dear friends and allies,We are excited to announce that the second National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) Conference will be hosted by us right here at the University of Michigan from November 2nd – 4th!!!

Will you support the largest student network for Palestinian solidarity in the United States and help us grow into an organized force for justice?

Titled “From Local Roots to Nationwide Branches: Bridging Student Movements,” this year’s gathering will focus on solidifying a national structure, sharing valuable knowledge across campuses, drawing connections to other indigenous and anti-racist struggles, and facilitating vital discussion on the growing Palestine solidarity movement.

NSJP hopes to build on the successes of last year’s conference, which was organized entirely by students and volunteers and attended by 350 students from across 130 campuses. But in order to make this conference a success, we need help from the broader community. Your financial support will go towards helping students from across the country who wish to attend the conference but cannot afford the full cost of travel. Last year, donations from supporters like you helped 80 students who could not afford travel costs attend the conference, and we hope that you will help us continue to offer this level of student support.

Last year, there were 21 informative workshops. NSJP took the first steps towards building a national structure to make our network stronger. We started an immensely important discussion on how to pool knowledge, experiences, and resources.

Creating and engaging Palestinian activism across US college (and now high school!) campuses is an opportunity to grow ourselves as organizers; it is a way to involve new, young people on the issue; it is a means of challenging academic discourses; and now with Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions, it is a chance to create real economic pressures.

Because NSJP is gaining ground, SJPs nationwide are under attack. The work to get SJPs collaborating and organized is more urgent than ever.

We want justice for Palestine and we’re taking the future into our hands — will you help us?

Donate today online or for tax-exempt donations, please mail checks to
WESPAC Foundation, 52 North Broadway, White Plains, NY 10603 with SJP National Conference in the memo.

In solidarity,
Students Allied for Freedom & Equality (SAFE)
