University Students Host "Florida Loves Israel" Conference
STANDWITHUS IS A PROUD SPONSOR OF
"FLORIDA LOVES ISRAEL" CONFERENCE FEB. 2-5

EAST COAST CAMPUS DIRECTOR AVI GORDON SPEAKS ON ISRAEL ADVOCACY AND THE BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS MOVEMENT AGAINST ISRAEL

Florida State University Student Organizations Host the
First Ever Israel Advocacy Conference



 
TALLAHASSEE, FL – Israel is more than hummus, pita, conflict, and politics. The student leaders of Florida State University’s Noles for Israel and Hillel at FSU have designed a ground breaking conference to teach the community just this. StandWithUs is a proud major sponsor of the Florida Loves Israel (FLI) Conference- a statewide Israel advocacy conference created and run by college students February 2-5, 2012.  The goal is to educate students and community members about all aspects of Israel: culture, politics, military life, food, dance, and security.  Furthermore, after years of imagining and proposing a state-wide meeting of Israel advocates, and university organizations, Florida State has taken the initiative to create and host the event.
 
Avi Gordon, StandWithUs East Coast Campus Coordinator will speak twice on “Advanced Advocacy” and the “THE BDS Movement: Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions  Against Israel.”
 
On February 2, 2012, students and advocates of Israel from across Florida will converge in Tallahassee- our state’s capitol. Many international Israel advocacy organizations will be presenting and co-sponsoring the conference together with StandWithUs including the Jewish Federation of North America, Hillel, The Israeli Consulate of Florida and Puerto Rico, The David Project, Hasbara Fellowships. This program will also be made possible by the Israel Action Network, an initiative of the Jewish Federations of North America in partnership with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. Some of our exciting speakers include the Deputy Consul General to Florida and Puerto Rico from the Israeli Consulate in Miami, English language Israeli radio host Yishai Fleischer, and Raanan Gissin, former Senior Advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to network with over 100 participants from around the state, experience the FSU Reservation, tour the state capital, and attend a Tel Aviv style party. The conference will end with a Bagel Brunch and organization fair hosted at Hillel at FSU, and sponsored by AEPI.
 
FLI gives Florida students and community members the opportunity to learn advance advocacy skills, experience Israeli culture, and participate in a once in a lifetime experience with hundreds of other Floridians. Noles for Israel and Hillel at FSU are very proud to have created this conference.
