About Us

Students for Palestinian Rights (SFPR) is a non-profit human rights organization based at the University of Waterloo. SFPR does not officially endorse any Israeli or Palestinian political party, nor does it select between a one-state or two-state solution.

Mission Statement

SFPR is committed to

  1. Educating University of Waterloo Students and residents of the Waterloo region about International law and how it pertains to the Israeli-Palestinian impasse
  2. Promoting the recognition of the Palestinian people as the indigenous people of Palestine and working in solidarity with other indigenous peoples, on and off campus, in a wider struggle for land, dignity, and rights.
  3. Advocating for the end of Israeli colonialism and all forms of imperialism that infringe upon the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination
  4. Combating all forms of oppression, racism, discrimination, misinformation and misrepresentation directed at Palestinians
  5. Promoting the Palestinian cause in Canadian political spheres
  6. Stressing that struggle of the Palestinian people is not a struggle against the Jewish people, but rather a struggle against the colonialist and imperialist policies of the Israeli government and the ideology upon which the state was formed.
