Sen. Ben Cardin, your Maryland senator, is the lead sponsor of the unconstitutional and draconian Israel Anti-Boycott Act. When confronted at a town hall last week, he said that groups defending your right to boycott, from the US Campaign to the ACLU, were “just wrong.” That’s why we’re sending a thunderous message to Sen. Cardin – with just one click you can join us!

We also plan to confront Sen. Cardin in person. Join Freedom to Boycott in Maryland and allies at Sen. Cardin’s Rockville town hall on Thursday, August 31 at 6 PM to stand up for our right to engage in BDS campaigns for Palestinian human rights and pressure him to stop plowing forward on this unconstitutional bill.

Resist Ben Cardin’s Attack on Free Speech & Palestinian Rights

It takes persistent pressure to move politicians. A successful activist mobilization got Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) to drop the bill by demanding their rights at not one, but two town halls. People have the power! That’s why we need you to raise your voice.

Whether or not you can be there, join the online campaign now – Sen. Cardin will only see it if 100 people join, so share with your friends and family, too! Thank you for standing up for BDS and Palestinian rights! Together, we can win.

Sincerely,

LEAH MUSKIN-PIERRET

P.S. We just sent a new resource to Capitol Hill that lays out five ways that your constitutional right to BDS is threatened by this bill. Read it here.
