Join us in Atlanta 9/25-9/27!
If you are still waiting for a reason to register for our 14th Annual National Conference: Advancing a Mass Movement for Palestine happening September 25-27 in Atlanta, GA, here are 10!
Hear from speakers and presenters including Ziad Abbas, Middle East Children’s Alliance; Phyllis Bennis, Institute for Policy Studies; Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter; Loubna Qutami, Palestinian Youth Movement; Sarah Schulman, author of Israel/Palestine and the Queer International; and more.
Attend workshops facilitated by member groups Palestine Legal, Palestine Advocacy Project, International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, American Muslims for Palestine, Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions-USA, and others.
Build on the increasing success of BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns 10 years after Palestinian civil society issued the call.
Connect with US Campaign staff and Steering Committee members. This will be the first conference for our Executive Director Yousef Munayyer.
Honor Palestinian American community leader Rasmea Odeh, who will be receiving the Damu Smith Memorial Activist Award during our Saturday night program. Rasmea has dedicated 50 years of her life to the liberation of Palestine, first as a teenager working with internally displaced refugees in Jerusalem and the West Bank; next as one of the most prominent political prisoners the movement has ever had; and now heading the Arab Women’s Committee in Chicago. She has spent the past two years fighting U.S. government persecution, the latest example of efforts to stifle Palestine organizing.
Network with activists working for Palestinian rights from across the country.
Reflect on lessons learned from other movements, the meaning of solidarity, and how we can better do joint struggle work to fight racism both here and abroad.
Be inspired by the work of the US Campaign coalition of hundreds of member groups to end all U.S. support for Israel’s denial of Palestinian rights.
The next 25 people to register will receive a free copy of Remi Kanazi’s Before the Next Bomb Drops: Rising Up from Brooklyn to Palestine. And he will sign it for you after his performance at the conference.
The conference program will begin at 5pm on Friday, September 25 and end at 7pm on Sunday, September 27. Registration is at a sliding scale of $60-$200 and includes entrance to all conference events, breakfast and lunch Saturday, and lunch Sunday. Prices will increase after August 21 so register today!
See you in Atlanta!
