What's next for the Birthright campaign?!
Wed Feb 27 2019 @ 5:0
We will be phone-banking and discussing the progress of the Birthright campaign - nationally and on our campus - as well as our action plan for the spring. We will also be calling Birthright to reiterate our ask for Palestinian speakers on their trips. Come learn how you can be a part of elevating Palestinian narratives within Israel education in the Jewish community.
In the fall, J Street U launched a campaign to challenge our communities to wake up to the omission and erasure of Palestinian perspectives and narratives. To this end, J Street CU ran a petition calling on our Hillel to include a Palestinian speaker on their Birthright trip. Now it's time to escalate - we're calling on Birthright directly to address their students' concerns.
