Students for Justice in Palestine

Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is an anti-Zionist, pro-Palestinian college student activism organization in the United States, Canada and New Zealand that has campaigned for boycott and divestment against corporations that deal with Israel, and organized various Palestine Awareness Week events that accuse Israel of war crimes, ethnic cleansing and genocide. As of 2010 SJP had more than 80 chapters at American universities. I am personally familiar with the SJP chapter in John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where I attend, and I personally feel like this organization is an imperative part of demonstrating how powerful students can be when it comes to making positive movements in the world.
