Combatting Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS): A Growing Threat Against Israel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Please join us as we explore the different aspects of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, with a focus on college campuses. While the actual impact on Israel’s economy from any successful BDS resolutions is negligible, the  public relations impact is of concern. And very importantly, the growing trend of BDS activity on college campuses can have a direct adverse impact on the social and cultural environment for our Jewish students on campus. We will discuss current trends and the organizational resources available to help train and support our students combatting BDS.
