JCPA: Take Action Now to Overturn Berkeley Divestment Bill

 Take Action Now to Overturn Berkeley Divestment Bill
On Thursday, April 18 the Associated Students (ASUC) at UC Berkeley passed SB160 calling on the ASUC and the UC Regents to divest from three companies doing business with Israel. We and the JCRC of San Francisco, the Peninusla, Marin, Sonomoa, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties are proud of the dozens of pro-Israel students, Jewish faculty members and Hillel for their tremendous efforts that fell just short.

The President of the UC Berkeley Student Body has until Wednesday, April 24 to veto this one-sided and harmful bill.

What can YOU do?
Email President Connor Landgraf TODAY calling on him to veto the bill.
We only have a small window of opportunity to urge him to veto the bill, so now is the time to act and spread the word - we cannot be complacent! Let President Landgraf know that the passage of Bill SB160 is alienating and hateful. Feel free to share any personal connection you may have to Cal, the Jewish community and Israel. Please refrain from using any incendiary or offensive language that may detract from this important cause.
