I am proud to announce that I will be attending the first ever National Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) Conference to be held at Columbia University from October 14 to 16! If you are a student activist on campus or if you are involved with SJP or SJP-related work, I encourage you to register and take part in the excellent workshops, discussions, and events planned for this conference. The full program can be found here.
For those who will not be in attendance but do hope to keep up with the conference, I will be exclusively live-blogging and reporting on the conference events and workshops through this blog. My hope is that this will allow the theme of the conference, “Students Confronting Apartheid”, to effectively spread and connect the national campus solidarity movement for Palestine.
Meanwhile, if you are not a student but are interested in helping or playing a role in this historic moment for solidarity activism in the United States, there are a number of available options. At the present moment, we have only raised 62 percent of the funds necessary to offset the conference costs. Even the smallest of donations can make a difference.
