Film Screening: Boycott

Boycott traces the impact of state legislation designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel due to its human rights record. A legal thriller with “accidental plaintiffs” at the center of the story, Boycott is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up to protect our rights in an age of shifting politics and threats to freedom of speech. The film was directed by Julia Bacha and produced by Suhad Babaa & Daniel J. Chalfen. For more information: www.theboycottfilm.org

This event is part of a larger series presented by the JFREJ Israel-Palestine Team as part of a participatory process that engages our neighborhood groups, caucuses, campaign teams, allies, and full membership. Together, we will do some deep learning together; clarify when and how we take action and speak out on the subject; align around a theory of change; and develop a shared understanding of our strategy on Israel-Palestine as a local issue. This series is only open to JFREJ dues-paying members in good standing. If you need to renew your dues or become a member, you can do so at jfrej.org/member!
