Advancing a Mass Movement for Palestine: 14th Annual National Conference of U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation

Date: 
Friday, September 25, 2015 - 00:30 to Sunday, September 27, 2015 - 23:30

The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation will hold its next conference September 25-27, 2015 in Atlanta (Holiday Inn & Suites Airport North, 1380 Virginia Ave, Atlanta, GA 30344).

This year's conference, Advancing a Mass Movement for Palestine, will focus on how we can push a mass movement for Palestinian rights through education, engaging with progressive forces, and being in solidarity with other struggles for justice, including the growing uprising against police brutality and mass incarceration. You can find program details here.

Registration is at a sliding scale of $60-$200 and includes entrance to all conference events, breakfast and lunch Saturday, and lunch Sunday. We are offering scholarships to help cover part of the cost of registration. Please email membership@endtheoccupation.org for more information.

With 2015 marking the 10 year anniversary of the Palestinian civil society call for BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions), we hope you will join us to further our goal to end all U.S. support for Israel's continued oppression of Palestinians and to reflect on our commitment to joint struggle work that will challenge racism both here and abroad.
