Here in New York, the Columbia College Student Council has handed a resounding defeat to student activists calling on Columbia to divest from the State of Israel. Over a year since the launch of their BDS campaign—and with exactly zero tangible progress to show for it—the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the ironically named Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) have once again been reminded how little support exists for their initiative on Columbia’s campus.



Students & Parents Against Campus Anti-Semitism (SPACA) seeks to empower and educate college students to stand up to anti-Israel campaigns and anti-Semitism on college campuses.
