LP acts as a resource and advocate for students whose speech is silenced by the BDS movement on campus, either through terror supporting campus groups such as SJP and MSA, or by professors and/or administrators who intimidate students whose political views diverge from their own. We work with students to find creative ways to amplify their voices, and make clear that attempts to suppress free speech on campus will be met with stronger, louder speech. Events like these bring to light the hypocrisy of academic institutions suppressing speech, while simultaneously broadcasting the important dialogue intended to be exposed.
LP is undertaking an extensive investigation into the connection between designated terrorist organizations and on-campus groups. We are working with private intelligence agencies to identify potential legal avenues available to stop these groups from operating on U.S. campuses, and to bring illegal activities such as fraud and money-laundering to the attention of law enforcement.
Challenging Campus BDS Through Litigation
Through Know Your Rights and the EndBDS Coalition, LP has increased our on-campus presence and offers pro bono legal services to students exposed to discrimination or bigotry. The demand for these services continues to grow, and it brings new and decisive opportunities to litigate on behalf of the interests of the communities we serve, not only to defend them from attack but to proactively change the narrative and set appropriate precedents nationwide.
We bring legal action in appropriate circumstances against colleges and universities nationwide, if they fail to protect the civil and constitutional rights of all students and professors, and if they allow environments of harassment and intimidation to continue despite legal obligations and DoE guidelines.
If (and when) Voices4Justice events, or other pro-human rights or counterterror events are cancelled or violently interrupted, LP will be standing by to file First Amendment, criminal and tort suits against the schools and the BDS-inspired actors silencing this critically important speech.
LP has already taken successful legal action in furtherance of these goals at Rutgers University and Boston University. Through our Legal Fund, we will be the principal organization facilitating litigation and other legal action on behalf of the pro-Israel community.
