The organization, Students for Justice in Palestine at UTA, held an event called Adopt-A-Refugee where they helped over 80 refugee is our area that were in need of basic necessities. They planned on running their event for 2 days and did not anticipate the quick reaction of the students to help these families. Within 2 hours all the families were adopted so they continued by collecting monetary donations.

This organization was formed last year in efforts to promote justice and human rights for the Palestinian people. I talked to a few students about why it is important for them to contribute and help this families.
