We affirm our commitment to the constitutional right to free speech. We affirm that boycotts and divestment in support of human rights are free speech and are aligned with UU principles upholding democracy in human affairs and the right of conscience.
Our opposition to laws penalizing the use of boycotts and divestment in support of Palestinian rights is based on our support for free speech and is independent of whether or not we as individuals or organizations endorse the BDS movement.
We call on members of the U.S. Congress and all other elected government officials to vigorously uphold the right of conscience and free speech by opposing legislation and executive orders that restrict and/or penalize boycotts for Palestinian rights.
BOTH ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS ARE ENCOURAGED TO SIGN THE FORM!
