SJP SJP @ USF is a chapter of the Students for Justice in Palestine, located at the University of South Florida and founded in 2010.

We want to promote understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the injustices of the military occupation. Students for Justice in Palestine (USF Chapter) was founded in 2010 in effort to create awareness about the injustices of military occupation in Occupied Palestine. We are a student organization at the University of South Florida, and hope to extend the olive branch and light to the Tampa Bay community. SJP USF is a political organization.

The western media will continue to portray this as “terrorism” but this is a response to over 70 years of ongoing occupation, ethnic cleansing, genocide, and apartheid. We will continue to be the voice for the thousands of children, women, and men who have been silenced and killed. The Palestinian struggle is not anti-semitic, rather, a struggle against Israeli zionists; a struggle to exist. We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian people.

“They would rather die on their feet, then be living on their knees.”
- Former President,

And as always, free Palestine 🇵🇸

THE EVENT THAT YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR: SJP presents to you, Threads of Palestinian Identity

Our first inaugural fashion show and concert will showcase Palestinian art, tatreez, culture, music and more.

Our show will highlight the importance of the threads of Palestinian identity showcasing Palestinian-American brands who tie in culture with their own modern twist. Palestinian Hustle, Min Biladi, and KUVRD, are all brands owned by those of the Palestinian diaspora in America and Canada. Our models will showcase the newest and latest collections of all our sponsored brands.

The importance of this show is to keep Palestinian heritage alive through the arts. The resistance of the Palestinian diaspora lives in concept of keeping our culture alive through the arts, because without it, our heritage will get erased.

All the way from the sunny California, performance by Palestine's very own rising artist, Saint Levant will set the stage for a night filled with the love for the arts, music, and culture.

Come celebrate Palestinian life and art with us November 21st, 2022 at 6:30 in the ballroom at the University of South Florida.

Our first GBM of the semester! Who’s excited!

To all our new bulls, we want to welcome you all to our first group body meeting where we’ll be briefly discussing the history of Palestine and why we’re fighting as a student organization for the freedom of the Palestinian people.

At this meeting, all members and new members will be able to hear about the exciting semester we have planned and will have a chance to join our whatsapp chat where we’ll discuss: current events about Palestine, debate about current affairs, and be the first to know about what’s stirring in the SJP kitchen.

To all the new freshman and transfers, our meetings are welcome to all and any ally of the Palestinian people is family to us. So make yourselves at home and join us this Wednesday at 5:30 pm in room 3704 (third floor) in the Marshall Student Center.

We look forward to meeting each and every one of you! and always,

Being a child of the diaspora, it’s the least of our duties to dedicate all our time, love, and passion to the beautiful country that birthed us. To all our martyrs, to our family, to our ancestors, and to our soldiers back home fighting for life everyday, this is all for you.

Hello beautiful human beings of this page! My names Leali Shalabi, and I’ll be serving as your President this semester!

I am majoring in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast News with a minor in Criminology.

This semester is my last semester at USF and I’m dedicated to making it all our beautiful members most memorable semester.

I’ve been apart of SJP since my freshman year at USF and am dedicated to serving our students body’s needs and our collective mission of raising awareness about Palestine.

Living in America it’s easy to lose sight of what’s happening back home, but that’s why collectively as an organization, as a student body, and as the resistance of our people, we will share our collective encounters, memories, and truth with the USF student body involving the apartheid happening in our homeland to raise awareness of what’s actually happening there.

I look forward to serving all of you, teaching you everything I know, and celebrating the life and the resistance, of our beautiful palestina.

We are the power of the people, and in solidarity, we will return.
