URGENT ACTION: PROTECT THE RIGHT TO BOYCOTT

Image result for right to boycott

 

This week, Senator Ben Cardin attempted to pass the bill, SR. 70, The Israel Anti-Boycott Act by attaching it to annual spending legislation. The unconstitutional bill aims to criminalize those who support international organizations boycotting for Palestinian human rights. 

The right to boycott is a civil right that is protected under the First Amendment. Boycott movements are an effective method used throughout U.S. history to achieve equality and civil rights for marginalized communities.   We call on the U.S. Congress to protect rule of law and reject legislation that criminalizes the principles stipulated in the U.S. Constitution.

TAKE ACTION NOW:

Contact Speaker of the House Representative Paul Ryan at  (202) 225-3031 or Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi at (202) 225-4965 to tell them you oppose the Anti-Israel Boycott Act to be included in the national budget. 

Please feel free to use ADC’s example script below:

Hi Representative Ryan/Pelosi, my name is _____.   I am calling to ask you to oppose the Anti-Israel Boycott Act that has been included in the annual budget. The proposed legislation is a violation of our right to freedom of speech. We strongly recommend that you protect my first amendment rights and oppose the Anti-Israel Boycott Act and uphold the rule of law.
