We are excited to announce our upcoming tour featuring Israeli speaker Hen Mazzig! Mazzig made headlines around the world last October when his CAMERA-sponsored event at UCL was targeted by a mob of aggressive anti-Israel protesters. Staying true to CAMERA's mission, we are not backing down, and are continuing to make Hen's voice heard on campuses across the East Coast of North America this spring.

In February, Tatiana met with 11 of the campuses she works with in Philadelphia, DC, and Florida. During her travels, she also attended a Shabbaton in Philadelphia and an ICC of Greater Washington conference in DC. "It was wonderful to meet and discuss the semester plans of all of the CAMERA-supported groups that I oversee.

Two Events to be held as part of "Israeli Apartheid Week" are Canceled in the UK
The UK government's adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition of antisemitism has prompted University College London and Lancashire University to cancel events that were to be held as a part of these Israel hate fests on campus. We applaud these schools for acting accordingly when antisemitic events on campus are identified. Read more about the decisions to cancel these two events here. Resources for responding effectively to IAW events on your campus can be found at our site www.israeliapartheidweek.com.
