Difficult Conversations: a Model for Framing the Israel/Palestine Conflict and Moving to Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS)

sponsored by Boston Jewish Voice for Peace and American Jews for a Just Peace – Boston

location: 1762 Beacon Street, Brookline, Mass

This meeting is designed to give us the tools to begin conversations with friends and colleagues who need more information as they take a position against the occupation.

Alice Rothchild, a physician, author and activist, will present an historical basis for the call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions. In breakout groups, we will discuss how we can apply what we heard in our own outreach around the JVP TIAA-CREF campaign.

Alice has co-chaired an annual health and human rights delegation to Israel/Palestine since 2003 and is the author of Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience (2nd edition 2010).
