Anti-BDS Legislation Hearing

  • Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon Street Boston, MA, 02133 United States (map)

The Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight will be hearing public testimony about legislation that aims to penalize supporters of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The hearing will be in room 437. This legislation (S.1689 /H.1685), deceptively titled “An Act Prohibiting Discrimination in State Contracts," is in fact a dangerous attempt to restrict our right to use boycotts to advocate for Palestinian human rights.
