October 2017

The Students for Justice in Palestine organization at the University of Houston will be hosting the annual National SJP conference this year right here in Houston!

The goal of the conference is to educate students from around the country on the issues facing Palestine today. The conference holds seminars on the influence of American politics, the BDS movement, Palestinian history, and the apartheid wall. This will be the first ever National SJP conference held in the southern United States.

All college students are encouraged to attend. For all others in the Palestinian community, show your support and donate to the conference today.
