J Street U @ GW is a pro-Israel organization that advocates for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; one that ensures peace, security and social justice in Israel, the future state of Palestine and across the Middle East. As supporters of Israel, we are firmly committed to protecting the future of the State of Israel as a Jewish democratic homeland. We believe the fates of a secure Israel and a viable Palestinian state are intertwined; that the peace and security of both peoples is achievable only through a negotiated, two-state solution.  Through various events, activities, and political initiatives, we week to broaden the conversation on Israel within our community by fostering an inclusive environment and informing the student body about the issues at hand.
