The National Lawyers Guild has joined with legal and human rights organizations across the US in opposition to the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S. 720 and H.R. 1697). The Act has received press attention and criticism from an array of civil rights and legal organizations because of its unconstitutional bans and criminal penalties for political speech, specifically advocacy for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid and for Palestinian rights.
The NLG is an institutional supporter of the BDS campaign and is involved in advocacy against this and other anti-BDS legislation alongside organizations like Palestine Legal.
