NLG Presents…” – Think & Drink Happy Hour
In November the Happy Hour was on Anti-BDS legislation. Twenty-five states have passed legislation that prohibits support for boycotts of Israel by any contractor of the state, or in some states, by anyone who receives any state benefits. The first challenge to one of these blatantly unconstitutional laws is just getting underway. In Massachusetts, Gardner Auditorium at the State House was packed last summer for a hearing on the Massachusetts version. NLG members spoke in opposition as well as submitted written testimony. Susan Nicholson led us in a discussion that included how we can work to counter the strong lobbying that is going on in favor of this legislation. Contact us to get involved.
