13th National Organizers' Conference
This year's conference, The Mainstreaming of BDS & Continuing Struggle for Palestinian Rights, will celebrate the increasing success of BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns; deal with challenges to Palestine activism; and reflect on the need to connect struggles for freedom, justice, and equality.
This is an opportunity for US Campaign member groups, supporters, and Palestinian rights activists to network and strategize around efforts to end all U.S. support for Israeli occupation and apartheid.
The conference will be taking place at the Town and Country Convention Center (500 Hotel Circle North 92108) and begin at 6:30pm PDT on Friday, September 19 and end around 1:30pm PDT on Sunday, September 21.
