We Need You

Next month I will be traveling to DC to attend the US Campaignís annual National Organizersí Conference

For the past 11 years, the conference has been an opportunity for our coalition members to come together for networking and strategizing around efforts to end U.S. institutional support for Israeli occupation and apartheid. Activists from across the country use the conference to connect with others working on similar campaigns in order to strengthen their own local work. Iíve attended the conference three times in the last four years and the US Campaign has given me essentials tools and networks that help me contribute to the BDS efforts of my member organization, the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee. Finally, the conference is an occasion to celebrate the successes we have had in working for Palestinian rights and reflect upon how we can step up our efforts to change U.S. policy, efforts that are making a difference. 

In order to meet our ambitious goals again this year, we need your help. Will you support the conference with a contribution of $50, $100, $200 or more?

The US Campaign staff is busy working to ensure the conference is once again a platform to support and grow campaigns for Palestinian rights. The program is coming together and will feature member group workshops about boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS); skillshares focusing on building local campaigns; and discussions about joint struggle and linking our Palestine activism in the United States with other social justice movements. 

Confirmed speakers include Noura Erakat, Josh Ruebner, Riham Barghouti, Robin D. G. Kelley, Sahar Vardi, and more! 

Donate today and help the US Campaign offer more workshop slots, provide more activists with reduced registration, and mobilize more people to work to end U.S. support for Israelís oppression of Palestinians.

With more than 400 groups now part of our coalition and BDS activism flourishing, please consider making a donation to help us continue our work for human rights, justice, and equality.
