Don't Forget: "Early Bird" Registration, Proposals, and Workshops Due this Friday!

August 16th, 2011

We are only four weeks away from this year’s 10th Annual National Organizers’ Conference, September 16-19, in Washington, DC!

This year's conference--"Looking Back, Moving Forward: How to Align U.S. Policy with Freedom, Justice, and Equality"--marks a decade of activism for human rights by our rapidly growing coalition, and we hope you can join us for the exciting conference. 

With over 370 member groups now a part of the coalition, this will be an ideal time for groups and activists to come together to build relationships, to reflect on our coalition's past and current work, our achievements and struggles, and to help us set the stage to end U.S. support of Israeli occupation and apartheid.

“Early bird” registration, proposals, and workshop submissions are due by the end of the day, Friday, August 19!


Our list of speakers and panelists includes political analyst and author Omar Barghouti, syndicated columnist Rami Khouri, author and analyst Phyllis Bennis, activist Cindy Corrie, writer and analyst Nadia Hijab, publisher and journalist Helena Cobban and more!

Register now to take advantage of the “early bird” discounted registration price of $100.  Registration will increase to $125/person after August 19.  Registration fees include five meals, conference materials, access to all events, and a special benefit concert with world-renowned violinist and oud player Simon Shaheen.

Member groups in good standing and conference registrants are also invited to:

•  Submit a proposal. The US Campaign will be accepting proposals to endorse campaigns or initiatives organized by a member group in good standing to advance the coalition's goals.

•  Host a workshop. Member groups in good standing can submit an application to hold a grassroots workshop on Sunday.

•  Rent an exhibitor table.

•  Book overnight accommodations under the conference room block at the Grand Hyatt hotel.

•  If you are unable to attend the conference, join us for our benefit concert with Simon Shaheen, or make a tax-deductible contribution to support the conference and our ongoing work.

Join us for this exciting event to share, learn, and organize with one another to end U.S. support for Israeli occupation and apartheid and to change U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel to support human rights, international law and equality.

The US Campaign has a limited number of reduced-price registrations available for students and/or low-income people who are willing to help with conference logistics. If you would like to inquire about a reduced-price registration, please contact Rana Libdeh at membership@endtheoccupation.org or 202-332-0994.

We hope to see you in a few short weeks!
