Boycott and Divestment Campaigns

In 2005, 170 Palestinian civil society organizations issued a historic, rights-based call to the international community for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) targeting Israel and institutions complicit in its oppressive policies towards Palestinians until it complies with international law and ensures freedom, justice, and equality. 

Find out more about the global BDS campaign at www.bdsmovement.net.

The US Campaign endorsed the Palestinian call for BDS shortly after it was issued in July 2005. Academic and cultural boycott were endorsed in 2009.  

Active campaigns in the US include those targeting Ahava, Ben & Jerry's, G4S, HP, Jewish National FundRe/Max, Sabra Hummus, and SodaStream. Divestment campaigns are happening in churches, campuses, local city councils, and beyond.
