About Us

Faculty for Palestine (F4P) is a Canada-wide solidarity network of academics committed to advancing the struggle for Palestinian liberation, justice, and equality through the academic sector. F4P is founded on anti-racist, anti-colonial, social justice principles and foregrounds opposition to Israeli apartheid, occupation, and settler colonialism in its work. F4P organizes on issues of academic freedom, freedom of expression, and boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel; supports and organizes educational activities and actions focused on Israeli apartheid, occupation, settler colonialism, and the Palestinian right to education. F4P is an active partner in the global BDS movement, working closely with the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), the Right to Education Campaign, and other partners in the Palestine solidarity movement transnationally. F4P stands against all forms of racism and specifically advocates on anti-Palestinian racism, Islamophobia, and antisemitism.

Faculty for Palestine (F4P) formed in spring 2008 as a committee of the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) in Toronto. The F4P network has grown to include more than 600 faculty of all ranks (tenured, contract, emeritus, independent researchers, retired, visiting scholars) from more than 40 universities and 15 colleges across Canada. F4P responded to the 2005 call from Palestinian civil society to join the Palestinian-led BDS movement, upholding the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity. F4P is not a cultural or ethnic organizing group, it is a solidarity organization and network involved as a partner in the global BDS movement.
