This Winter Break

The Union of Progressive Zionists at the University of Michigan seeks to create debate and inspire action which further our goal of a just, lasting, 2-state based peace in Israel and Palestine. We run out of the UM Hillel. We host discussions, bring in speakers, show movies, and run cultural and social justice oriented programming with other Jewish and Muslim groups.

Get involved! Read our core beliefs, come to an event or a meeting, browse our webpage, or drop us a line. Thanks for checking us out.

The UPZ National is a broad network of campus organizations whose main goal is to create a voice for Progressive Zionist students - those who support Israel as well as a two-state solution and an end to the occupation. The UPZ was created to fill a void that exists on North American college campuses today, where the only opinions that can be heard are either those of blind support for Israeli government policies, or those who challenge Israel's right to exist.

The founding organizations of the Union of Progressive Zionists - Hashomer Hatzair, Habonim Dror, Meretz USA, and the Labor Zionist Alliance - have come together to build a national student organization that will promote dialogue, activism, and community building related to Israel and the ensuing conflict, to strengthen the voice of peace activists both on a grassroots and national level. Through speaker tours, conferences, and activism on both a local and national level, we hope to create a forum for students who care about Israel and believe in a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
