A letter from UCLA Student for Justice in Palestine member:
I am writing you today to ask for your support for the upcoming National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) conference. SJP is an organization dedicated to preserving the rights, dignity and culture of Palestinians through solidarity work.
As an alum of SJP, I feel proud that the organization I joined six years ago, when there were only a handful of chapters, has grown to over 100 chapters with over 1,300 members nationally. At the inaugural Students for Justice in Palestine conference in November 2011, we used the raised funds to bring 350 students from across the United States to attend and lay the foundation for the first SJP network. This monumental conference aided in the development of new chapters, forming regional links, joining the ongoing boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns (BDS), establishing solidarity with other social justice causes and passing BDS resolutions at 4 universities. (You can more read about these victories in detail here, and watch a video of conference highlights here.)
We need your support to help us sustain our momentum and strengthen our organization.
Please consider donating today; even just a small amount will put us closer to our goal of bringing 400 students to the University of Ann Arbor, Michigan for the second annual Students for Justice in Palestine conference. You can easily donate on our Paypal website: http://sjpnational.org/donate/ or mail a check to:
52 North Broadway
White Plains, NY 10603.
Your donation will go a long way in keeping the fire alive in student activism, and a voice for Palestinian rights on college campuses.
In love and solidarity.
