Register Now: San Francisco Bay Area Media Workshop for the Academic Council


Have you ever read an article on campus issues that got it totally wrong?

Or an op-ed that you disagreed with so fundamentally, you couldn’t believe it was published at all?

Or, have you ever written – or signed – a statement with fellow academics, and wished you could do more to get your analysis into the world?

Come to one of our media workshops!

Register now for our San Francisco Bay Area training,

October 22, 9-6 in the San Francisco Women’s Building

If you’d like to gain a broader audience for your academic and Palestine solidarity work, intervene in public discourse, or learn how to use the media to defend ourselves from increasingly harsh attacks, this workshop is for you.

In this workshop, you will collaborate with fellow scholars to learn:

  • the nuts and bolts of how the media works, and how to influence public discourse
  • how to write, time and pitch op-eds and public statements on Palestine and academic freedom issues
  • how to prep for interviews and handle reporters


Who can register?

Registration is open for all Academic Council members, and academics who are committed to justice in Palestine. We invite all those with no media experience but want to learn, and those with some experience who want to make their statements and activism more effective. Junior faculty and graduate students are encouraged to attend.


These workshops are sliding scale, with a minimum donation of $18 and a suggested donation of $36. Larger donations subsidize faculty and graduate students who pay on the lower end of the spectrum.

When and Where:

This workshop will take place on  Sunday, October 22 from 9 am – 6 pm in the SF Bay Area, at the San Francisco Women’s Building.


Childcare will be available at no cost to you. In order to access childcare, you must register by October 6th at the latest.


We have a very small amount of travel stipends available, and as you register, you can apply for reimbursement up to $100 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that there will be a NYC workshop in December.

If you have any questions, please contact Tallie Ben Daniel at




Back in the mid-90s, three young Jewish women realized they could no longer keep silent about Israel’s occupation – and decided to do something about it. Watch their story – our story – here.



Researching the American Israeli Alliance and Jewish Voice for Peace’s report reveals the extent of massive training programs between U.S. law enforcement and Israeli police, military, and the Shin Bet.

End the Deadly Exchange

When US law enforcement trade tactics with the Israeli police and military, Israel deepens its military occupation and the US heightens its violence of policing. Tell the Truth

Days ago, bowed to pro-Israel activists and started describing all of Jerusalem as a “city in Israel” – literally erasing Palestinian East Jerusalem. Let’s get to tell the truth: East Jerusalem is occupied territory.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
