JVP's Spring Newsletter is out!
In these pages, you’ll see the breathtaking breadth of work that JVP’ers have been doing in the last few months —‑ from solidarity actions with the Freedom Ride in Palestine, to fighting “pinkwashing” in Seattle, to supporting church divestment across the U.S., to extending the JVP Rabbinical Council’s remarkable outreach, to bringing the TIAA-CREF campaign to campuses. This amazingly diverse work is supported by the common threads that run through each project and campaign.
JVP is the only major Jewish organization whose organizing principles are based upon support for human rights, equality, and international law. In practice, that means we are able to build meaningful relationships with Palestinian and Arab-American activists, Israeli allies, and church groups; all while simultaneously reaching larger and larger segments of the Jewish community. We are able to act in true solidarity with allies, while also being a home and voice of conscience for Jewish Americans. This intersectional approach is what builds the larger movement at this critical moment.
