BDS – Get Involved!
- There are a number of ongoing BDS campaigns nationwide in which supporters of peace with justice in Israel/Palestine can become involved. Locally, the Rachel Corrie Foundation actively defends and supports the gains of the Olympia Food Co-op, the first food institution in the U.S. to implement a full boycott of Israeli products. We also support boycott of and divestment from Caterpillar Inc., and efforts by religious communities like the United Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to boycott and divest from Caterpillar Inc. and other companies profiting from the illegal Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. To get involved with Rachel Corrie Foundation BDS efforts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
