People for Justice in Palestine

People for Justice in Palestine (PJP) is a nonpartisan group of people from the Iowa City community concerned about the crisis in Israel and the occupied territories. The crisis cannot be understood without addressing the historical injustices and discrimination suffered by Palestinians, including the thirty-five year Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. We have joined together to support a just and lasting peace for the peoples of the region, and we understand that a lasting peace is impossible while the Israeli occupation continues
Our mission is to unite Jews, Muslims, Christians, and others in the pursuit of the following goals:
Ending the Israeli occupation of all Arab land taken in 1967, reversing the Israeli settlement of that land, and providing a just solution for Palestinian refugees
Ending U.S. military aid and investment that fuels Israeli human rights abuses
Compelling Israel to comply with human rights conventions, United Nations resolutions, and other relevant international law
