Defending Dissent: Virtual Screening and Discussion of Boycott
Join us for a special screening of Just Vision’s latest documentary, Boycott, on March 15th at 4-6pm PST/ 7-9PM EST. Following the screening, we look forward to hosting a Q&A with Just Vision's Communications Associate, Daniel Nerenberg, and movement attorneys Meera Shah from Palestine Legal and Lauren Regan from the Civil Liberties Defense Center.

Boycott follows a news publisher, an attorney, and a speech therapist, who, when forced to choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, launched legal battles that continue to expose an attack on the ability of progressive movements to hold power to account. The film traces the impact of legislation and executive orders passed in 34 states designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel due to its ongoing violations of Palestinian human rights.

The film’s story is becoming increasingly more urgent. This February, the Supreme Court declined to hear one of the legal cases spearheaded by the ACLU and featured in the film. This missed opportunity to acknowledge the political pedigree of boycott as a cornerstone of civil rights movements across US history should trouble all those fighting for justice. Meanwhile, copy-cat anti-boycott bills targeting those fighting for climate justice, safe abortions, gun control, trans liberation, and Indigenous self-determination continue to be aggressively pushed by the conservative lobby all across the country.

As Boycott continues to make its way across the country, we are thrilled to be sharing this timely story with the National Lawyers Guild. We hope you can join us.

This event is hosted by the National Lawyers Guild, including the following national committees: the United People of Color Caucus, Anti-Racism Committee, International Committee, and Palestine Sub-Committee
