Harvard University will provide $2,050 to the Palestine Solidarity Committee for Israeli Apartheid Week, according to an article published by the university newspaper, the Harvard Crimson.

Harvard’s undergraduate council voted to provide the funds for the event from the student government Grant for an Open Harvard College budget, which supports “mental health, race, culture and faith relations, sexual assault and harassment prevention, social spaces and financial accessibility," according to reports.
IAW is an international series of events that seeks to raise awareness about Israel’s apartheid regime over the Palestinian people and build support for the growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, it states on the organization’s website.

At Harvard, IAW will run through April 4. 


Among the speakers visiting Harvard during IAW is Omar Barghouti, a founding committee member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel and a co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
