Independent Jewish Voices Carleton is a chapter of Independent Jewish Voices Canada. IJV Carleton is composed of Jewish students and other community members who stand in solidarity with Palestine. Alongside its focus on social justice and activism, IJV provides an alternative Jewish space on campus, for students to engage with Jewish culture outside of Zionism.
IJV is a grassroots Palestine solidarity organization grounded in Jewish tradition that provides a voice for Jewish Canadians who support a just peace in Israel-Palestine. IJV aims to centre Palestinian voices in its work, and supports the 2005 call issued by the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) National Committee for an international campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.
In addition, IJV stands in solidarity with Indigenous peoples and with all marginalized peoples in Canada against racism, settler colonialism and white supremacy. IJV also works to combat antisemitism and distinguish it clearly from critiques of Zionism and Israeli policies.
