About Us

SPHR is a non-profit, student-based organization that advocates on a strong social justice platform to uphold the rights of the Palestinian people in the face of human rights violations and all forms of racism, discrimination, misinformation and misrepresentation.

Through awareness raising, advocacy work, non-violent direct actions, solidarity building, and the promotion of Palestinian identity, culture and history, SPHR works to support and protect Palestinian human rights both locally and internationally.

Our Objectives:

  • To promote and protect Palestinian human rights both locally and internationally, including the right of resistance against human rights abuses.
  • To combat all forms of racism, discrimination, misinformation and misrepresentation directed at Palestinians and Arabs.
  • To support the right of return and the right to compensation for all Palestinian refugees. The right of return and the right to compensation are inalienable and individual rights which cannot be delegated, diminished, or forfeited by any representation on behalf of the Palestinians in any agreement or treaty. In addition to the right of return, refugees are entitled to compensation.
  • To advocate for the end of Israeli colonialism and all forms of imperialism that infringe upon the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.
  • To promote the recognition of the Palestinian people as the indigenous people of Palestine and to work in solidarity with other indigenous peoples in a wider struggle for land, dignity, and rights.
  • To underline that the struggle of the Palestinian people is not a struggle against Jewish peoples, but rather a struggle against the colonialist and imperialist policies of the Israeli government and the ideology upon which the state was formed.
