Last week, we highlighted our impressive accomplishments (below), with new breakthroughs with students, the media and politicians! But huge new challenges loom for 2023.

Our report on Canadian arms sales to Israel and our UN Dashboard were just two initiatives that garnered wide attention on Parliament Hill.

CJPME 2022 Impact Report – a year of accomplishments!

World opinion on Israel is clearly starting to change!: public opinion polls show increasing disapproval; the media are far more skeptical of the Israeli line; and human rights organizations accuse Israel of apartheid. And CJPME is part of this change, with another amazing year of accomplishments. In 2022, CJPME was quoted more than ever by the media, and contacted more than ever to provide our expertise to politicians and policymakers. 2022 saw us expand our work with students in a major way, send our VP to Palestine to network with Palestinian NGOs and activists, and carry out dozens of other impactful campaigns and activities. Check out our 2022 highlights below to see the full breadth of our impact! And if you’re not already doing so, get the day-to-day updates by following us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn.
