Vonvo Seminars on BDS

From the Israel Advocacy group, StandWithUs

Want to learn more about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel? Its real agenda is the elimination of the state of Israel. Learn how you can eliminate BDS, instead.
StandWithUs (SWU) is proud to present a 3- part live, interactive roundtable discussion series "Standing Up to BDS" on to analyze the BDS movement and effective responses to its tactics. Our first program will focus on universities. Speakers are: Dr Michael Harris, community activist with StandWithUs San Francisco ; Brett Cohen, SWU National Campus Program Director, Hen Mazzig, Campus Coordinator SWU Northwest, and Max Samarov, SWU research assistant. Audience participants can send in questions via the live chat room.

Please join us at 12 noon Eastern 9 AM Pacific, 7 PM Israel time on Sunday March 2 at

Our second program on Sunday March 9 will feature Dr Harris in discussion with Rob Jacobs, director of StandWithUs Northwest and Barbara Mazor, one of the leaders of the successful effort to defeat the BDS movement at the Park Slope Food Co-op in Brooklyn, about ways to counter BDS attempts to coerce community organizations and businesses to boycott Israeli products.

Our third and final event on Sunday March 16 will include Dr Harris as well as Roberta Seid, director of research for StandWithUs, and Peggy Shapiro, Chicago community coordinator for StandWithUs discussing how to stop BDS in the academic community.

All 3 events will all be held at 12 noon Eastern 9 AM Pacific, 7 PM Israel time.
