Bring the US Campaign to Your Area!March 24th, 2009
The US Campaign is now accepting applications for our fall 2009 national campus organizing tour. The goal of this tour is to build sustainable boycott & divestment campaigns on campuses in five cities across the country.
The relationship between the US Campaign and boycott & divestment campaigns in the five selected city will be much more than just three days of workshops & events - it will include a commitment from all parties to work together to build local, regional, and national networks for organizers working on boycott & divestment.

The movement for boycott & divestment as a too of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli military occupation has come a long way since the US Campaign was founded seven years ago and we're proud to say that we've played a role in this growth. Now, after Hampshire College's successful divestment, we are proud to be working with the students from Hampshire SJP to bring the necessary speakers and workshops to campus communities across the country. A comprehensive organizing effort like this may have been just a dream seven years ago, but your support has made it a reality today. Continue supporting our boycott & divestment work by making a contribution in support of our fall 2009 tour today!
