Overview and metadata sections
The Princeton Committee on Palestine is an organization at Princeton University that stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people against injustice and in defense of human rights. They aim to end the occupation of the West Bank and the siege on the Gaza Strip. The organization develops educational programming that raises awareness of the Palestinian narrative, Palestinian culture, and the Israeli government's ongoing occupation of the West Bank and siege on the Gaza Strip, as well as how these intersect with racism, militarism, colonization, environmental justice, freedom of movement, rights to education, and more.
The Princeton Committee on Palestine initiated the Princeton Divests campaign on November 5th, 2014, inviting the Princeton University community to join 48 tenured professors in taking a stand for human rights by calling on the University to divest from companies complicit in the military occupation of the West Bank and the continuing siege of Gaza.
The Princeton Committee on Palestine Records consists of materials related to the Princeton Divests campaign. Included are meeting minutes, petitions, signature sheets, outreach documents, harassment documentation, graphics, and other materials.
The collection is arranged into a single series. Folders within the series retain their original order as when transferred to the University Archives. The Uncategorized Files folder contains all files that were not previously categorized into another folder.
The records were transferred to the University Archives in April of 2016 as part of the Archiving Student Activism at Princeton (ASAP) initiative (AR.2016.026).
