Does it seem like you've seen a call to action about this legislation before? Perhaps because these terrible bills in Congress are like "the thing that wouldn't die."
Seriously though, two dangerous bills continue to make their way through Congress. They could gravely undermine the work of advocates for a just peace for Palestinians and Israelis. It is vital that we keep making our voices heard and keep up the pressure on Congress to oppose them.
The Israel Anti-Boycott Act and the Combating BDS Act of 2017 are one part of a broader effort in our federal and state legislatures to outlaw or penalize the use of boycotts, divestment, and sanctions aimed at Israeli government policies.
These bills infringe on the right to boycott which the Supreme Court has affirmed as a form of free speech. They would put legal obstacles in the way of nonviolent action to bring about social change and would hinder our freedom to steward our financial resources as we choose. (Learn more about these bills below and with the articles in the yellow box.)
It is urgent that members of Congress hear from US, their constituents who oppose such bills. CONTACT CONGRESS NOW.
