Full Description: 

The Boycott, Divesment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is the most effective form of solidarity in support of Palestinians. Since the Israeli war on Gaza, BDS has grown exponentionally in the United States. Countless campaigns across the country have called for churchs, campuses, municipalities, as well as corporations, to divest from Israel so long as it continues to violate Palestinian rights. This session seeks to bring together all these campaigns, as well as social justice organizations across all issues, to strategize on how best to expand the BDS movement across the US. The session will work to encourage social justice movements to take on BDS within their own work. It will open up space for BDS campaigners to think together with social justice organizers on how best to move forward, seed more campaigns across the country, and more effectively bring BDS into the core of the social justice movement.
