On Tuesday (1/29/19), the Senate passed S 1, a bill that included provisions
criminalizing our right to boycott
-spending-bill-criminalize-boycotts-israel-and> , which were put in the bill
to try to stop the boycott movement against Israel's apartheid and human
rights abuses.

You can thank California's Senators Feinstein
<>  and Harris
<>  for voting against S 1. Tell them
you want our right to boycott protected and that you also object to the $38
billion in aid for Israel that was included in S 1.

Now we need to contact our representatives in the House and ask them to
voice their opposition to S 1's companion bill HR 336
-billions-of-dollars-combat-bds/>  or any bill that would take away our
right to boycott and to the $38 billion in aid for Israel that is included
in HR 336.

Call or email your representative  <>
Matsui,  <> Bera,
<> Garamendi, McNearny
<> , LaMalfa
<> , others and Speaker of the House
<> Nancy Pelosi 

All members of Congress can be reached through the Congressional Switchboard
