WHO & WHY
For the first time in the history of StandWithUs, we are bringing high school students, college students, and community members to Los Angeles to spend several transformative days together at the StandWithUs International Conference - Israel In Focus.
We will LEARN, SHARE, and STRATEGIZE how to most effectively educate our communities about Israel, and counter the misinformation, prejudice and anti-semitism that too often distorts the issues. Our focus at this conference is to empower you, the grassroots activists, experts, leaders, and strategists to advance our shared mission of educating people of all ages and backgrounds around the world about Israel.
Why are we doing this? This conference takes place at a tumultuous time for Israel, the pro-Israel community, and the world in general. The challenges we face are immense, but so are the opportunities we have to positively share Israel’s story and proactively educate people everywhere. We believe education is the road to peace.
Come LEARN, SHARE, and STRATEGIZE with StandWithUs in beautiful, sunny and warm Los Angeles, California in January 2018.
