Join us for a first-ever international summit at the UN on ways to confront national boycotts and delegitimization
The BDS movement continues to make strides in its campaign to delegitimize the State of Israel. The movement is gaining increased support on campuses around the world as it promotes initiatives on local and national levels calling to divest and boycott the Jewish state.
Israel’s Mission to the United Nations in partnership with the World Jewish Congress, ACLJ, Israel Bonds, Keren Hayesod, StandWithUS and B’nai B’rith International, will host an international gathering of students, organizations and agencies from around the world, to join efforts, form a unified plan of action and cultivate ambassadors ready to fight the battle against exclusion and delegitimization of nations and peoples, while promoting understanding and respect.
This conference will take place on May 31, 2016, and 1,500 student leaders and Jewish community leaders are invited to attend. It will include an opening plenary session in the UN General Assembly Hall and a series of professional panels related to the topic of confronting BDS.
