National Statement from Jews for Palestine

We are a coalition of Jewish and Israeli students and affiliates from Harvard, MIT, the University of Pennsylvania, and Jewish and Israeli organizations across the United States. In the past two months, there have been grave and chilling instances of antisemitism on our campuses.
