JVP is a national organization based upon Judaism’s commitment to social justice. We work for peace, human rights, and respect for international law. We support governmental policy at home and abroad that reflects these values. We seek justice for all peoples who suffer from bigotry and oppression and stand for equal human rights for the Palestinian people.
The Hudson Valley JVP chapter seeks to work with other organizations that share our commitments to peace and justice in U.S. domestic and foreign policy, to end racism, anti-semitism, and discrimination, including Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant / anti-refugee bias. In the past we have co-sponsored events to oppose Islamophobia, and will continue to do so with our canvassing campaigns. We will also form coalitions whenever possible to work locally to support equality, peace, racial justice, criminal justice, environmental justice and health care for all in the United States, and to influence U.S. foreign policy to advance the cause of Peace and Justice for all peoples of the Middle East.
