Justice for Palestine

Founded in the wake of the December ‘08 Israeli attack on Gaza, Justice for Palestine is a community educational and organizing project. We provide grassroots education and generate political pressure needed to re-orient US policy toward a just peace. Coordinated by the Syracuse Peace Council, it includes people active in the local Methodist Task Force for Middle East Peace, the Islamic Society of Central New York, Al Huda Muslim American Society Mosque and Syracuse Jews for Peace.

Take Action

This August, the Israeli government plans to continue its ethnic cleansing across all of Palestine by forcibly pushing Palestinians out of their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan. The Palestinian people remain steadfast in their resistance, refusing to be uprooted from their homeland. For decades, the U.S. has funded this violence, and now in solidarity with a continuing, historic Palestinian uprising of unity against Israel’s colonialism, we in the U.S. have a role to rise with them.
