The mission of Penn Law Palestine Solidarity (PLPS) is to promote peace, justice, human rights, and liberation for the Palestinian people. PLPS works to open up dialogue and raise awareness within the Penn Law community about the Palestinian struggle and to provide opportunities for the voices of Palestinians and their advocates to be heard.
We are opposed to all forms of racial, ethnic, and religious discrimination and bigotry, including antisemitism and Islamophobia.
Events: Last year, PLPS hosted a number of events to raise awareness of the Palestinian struggle. Two highlights include a panel during Public Interest Week marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel and the forced expulsion of 750,000 indigenous Palestinians from their land, and a panel on anti-boycott legislation featuring a litigator from the ACLU.
