Introducing The UPZ

Finally offering a viable alternative to AIPAC and Hillel’s Israel on Campus initiatives for progressive college-aged Jews, a coalition of left-wing Zionist organizations have banded together to form The Union of Progressive Zionists:

The UPZ is a broad network of campus organizations whose main goal is to create a voice for Progressive Zionist students – those who support Israel as well as a two-state solution and an end to the occupation. The UPZ was created to fill a void that exists on North American college campuses today, where the only opinions that can be heard are either those of blind support for Israeli government policies, or those who challenge Israel’s right to exist.

The founding organizations of the Union of Progressive Zionists, Hashomer Hatzair, Habonim Dror, Meretz USA, and the Labor Zionist Alliance, have come together to build a national student organization that will promote dialogue, activism, and community building related to Israel and the ensuing conflict, to strengthen the voice of peace activists both on a grassroots and national level. Through speaker tours, conferences, and activism on both a local and national level, we hope to create a forum for students who care about Israel and believe in a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
