Donate to SJP-West December 19, 2013 by sjpwest Dear allies – After a very successful year of organizing on the West Coast, SJP-West is now holding its fall fundraising drive. This year we are asking for donations to support two major initiatives that we hope will continue to grow and expand our work: 1) Funding Student Travel to the National SJP Conference: This fall, Students for Justice in Palestine chapters across the West Coast are fundraising to support student travel to the National SJP Conference in Boston, Massachusetts (October 24-26). We are hoping to be able to help offset the travel costs of students from the 20+ SJP chapters up and down the West Coast. We hope to raise $3,000 for travel support. This conference is an amazing opportunity for activists from across the country to meet each other, learn from each other, build solidarity, and coordinate actions for the year. 2) Supporting the Right to Education Campaign’s West Coast tour: In addition, we are also asking for financial support for Palestinian students to travel to California as part of the Right to Education Tour. Palestinian students from Birzeit University will be visiting the United States, providing a rare and important opportunity for Palestinians living under occupation to directly speak to university students in the United States.
