StandWithUs is an international non-profit organization dedicated to informing the public about Israel and to combating the extremism and antisemitism that often distorts the issues. We work by supporting people around the world who want to stand up for Israel and educate their own local campuses and communities. We ensure that the story of Israel’s achievements and ongoing challenges is told around the world. We believe that education is the road to peace. StandWithUs has 18 offices across the U.S., in Israel,the UK, and Canada.
About Stand With Us Canada
StandWithUs Canada was launched in 2013. Since its founding in 2001, StandWithUs has supported, trained, and provided resources to college students across North America. Over the years, the campus department has grown to include a sizeable team of campus professionals and lay leaders who are dedicated to supporting students’ efforts to promote and defend Israel amid the virulent anti-Israel movement on college campuses. Our activity on campuses includes activism training, financial assistance for programming, educational campaigns, and informational material to support pro-Israel student groups and efforts. In the face of increasing BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel) activity on college campuses, StandWithUs provides support and guidance to student groups opposing BDS efforts by anti-Israel groups. Furthermore, elite student leaders on college campuses across North America are invited to apply for the prestigious StandWithUs Emerson Fellowship each year.
