Representatives and Senators in the Illinois legislature should oppose HB4011 and SB1761. These bills would legitimize the de-facto Israeli annexation of the West Bank by cutting off state contracts with companies that boycott Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
Call your Illinois State Representative and Senator now and urge them to oppose HB4011 and SB1761.

- You can find your State Senator’s phone number here: http://www.ilga.gov/senate/
When you’re done, report you call below.
Boycotting Israeli settlements in the West Bank as a means of protesting the Israeli occupation has wide political support in the US and internationally, including by Peace Now (Shalom Achshav) in Israel and Americans for Peace Now in the US, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Presbyterian Church, and United Methodist Church in the US. Any private Israeli entity that wants to receive funding from the European Union must demonstrate that it has no links to the West Bank.
Urge your Representative and Senator in the Illinois legislature to oppose HB4011 and SB1761 by calling them now.
