SJP students put on many events each semester, including the traditional last meeting of the semester pictured here, Open Your Mindrophone.
Since its founding in the 1980s, Students for Justice & Peace has been involved in creating positive social change both globally and locally. Selected examples of our work include:
SJP worked with St. Thomas dining services to bring Fair Trade coffee to campus.
SJP students attended an annual protest against the School of the Americas in Bennington, Georgia.
SJP students hosted a lively trivia night to raise awareness about Fair Trade products.
SJP raised money to buy a water filter for a girls’ school in Najaf, Iraq.
At the last meeting of every semester, students gather to share poetry and other creative work to inspire others to live out SJP’s mission.
