Help make my last conference the best ever!

Help Us Advance a Mass Movement for Justice for All 

I joined the US Campaign Steering Committee in 2006 as a result of the passing of US Campaign founding member and organizer extraordinaire Damu Smith, for whom our activist award is named. 

In the past nine years, I have witnessed firsthand the ups and downs of the US Campaign's work for Palestinian rights. We have gone from having very few active BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) campaigns to now having more BDS victories than we can track. We have moved from having no traction in Congress to members now sending letters to the State Department calling for the U.S. to investigate Israeli human rights violations. We have grown from a small number of activists to a coalition of hundreds of groups and close to 250,000 online supporters

Our annual conference has been an integral part of these developments, providing a space for networking and sharing our collective efforts to end all U.S. support for Israeli occupation and apartheid. It has been a place to celebrate our wins, reflect on how much more we still need to do, and renew our commitment to the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice, and equality. 

Will you help make my 10th national conference as a Steering Committee member a successful one by helping us raise $10,000? Your donation of $10, $50, $100 or more keeps registration costs low and provides scholarships to help activists attend.

It is especially exciting that we are returning to Atlanta this year during this time of growing solidarity between those fighting for freedom here and abroad, something we will be discussing throughout the weekend. Your contributions will make our conference once again a gathering to push our work forward and advance a mass movement for justice for all. 

Please donate today to help us reach our goal.
