DEFEND FREE SPEECH & THE RIGHT TO BOYCOTT
PLEASE JOIN THE MAY 19 WEBINAR OFFERED BY THE PEACE & JUSTICE COMMITTEE OF THE EPISCOPAL DIOCESE OF CHICAGO
On November 23, 2019 at the annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, delegates approved by unanimous voice vote Resolution G-182, Freedom of Speech and the Right to Boycott. This resolution calls upon federal and state legislators to oppose bills that penalize or criminalize support for nonviolent boycotts on behalf of Palestinian human rights. Such legislation undermines First Amendment protections and paves the way for other attacks on our Constitutional rights.
In February the Secretary of Convention communicated the text of G-182 to legislators representing Episcopalians resident within the Diocese.
On Tuesday, May 19 from 6-7:30 pm, join the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago Peace & Justice Committee for an informational webinar on Resolution G-182 and its implementation. Learn how you can be involved in defending the First Amendment.
Your participation in the webinar will be much enhanced if you read Resolution G-182 and its explanation in advance, and scroll down to G-182.
