Designed to educate and empower students to combat anti-Jewish hatred on campus.

Allied Voices for Israel (AVI) unites students of all backgrounds against anti-Jewish hatred. AVI offers a multi-faceted approach to Israel advocacy and education by empowering a new and diverse cohort of Israel advocates at high school and university campuses across Canada.

 

Through allyship programs to Israel, educational workshops, media fellowships, and other intensive programs, AVI is inspiring a new generation of students to change the narrative around Israel. By embracing our peers, we are establishing a movement of students who work together to achieve strength in numbers and create a more just society.
