Program areas at StandWithUs
Community support, educational materials and activities in the usthe professionals at Standwithus have found that the same pernicious anti-israel, antisemetic propoganda that is being promoted on campuses is also used in communities around the world to achieve the same destructive goals. The main goal is to create animosity towards Israel and its supporters. The boycott movement against Israel continues to menace well-meaning communities around the world. Churches and co-op markets and labor unions have become common targets and platforms for creating ill will against Israel and its supporters, particularly jews. The same strategies and tools that Standwithus is using on college campuses are also being used within communities. (see schedule o)for 19 years, Standwithus has been engaged with educating and inspiring people of all ages. Standwithus is there to support community members in a variety of ways, from funding events to producing publications on a variety of issues, to responding to anti-israel / antisemetic campaigns, to bringing relevant guest speakers, to hosting educational conferences, films, and more.standwithus has become the largest producer and distributor of well documented, colorful, user friendly and engaging publications for campus and communities about Israel and the jewish people. The materials and films that Standwithus produces are used in colleges, synagogues, high schools, middle schools and communities. Millions of copies of our materials have been distributed each year in multiple languages, and are available in hard copy, on the internet as well as mobile devices. Standwithus has also become significant leaders on social media, reaching millions of people each week.
Campus support and community activities in the usstandwithus has become a household word around the united states for people who want to educate their local communities about Israel and fight antisemitism, whether it is on campuses or in their communities. All our offices have a similar approach. We offer training, materials and speakers for campuses, high schools, middle schools, churches, synagogues and community events. We regularly host large and small conferences and other forms of educational programs. Standwithus has been working on college campuses since its inception. This is because students across the country have reached out to the professionals at Standwithus (since our early beginnings) (see schedule o)and asked for help because they feel threatened on far too many college campuses where Israel and jews are being misrepresented. Students have reported hate speech, and antisemitic, hateful campaigns being hosted on their campuses through speakers, professors and propagandists who create ill will on campus for Israel and its supporters. Students and community members who want to educate their peers need the tools and support to do so. Standwithus provides strategic guidance and will create materials as needed, to make sure that we challenge half-truths, lies and misinformation. Standwithus will not say "no" to students who ask for help, as long as the need is related to the Standwithus mission of education and fighting antisemitism. Standwith us has become an important resource for any student who wants to correct the promotion of misinformation about Israel and jews within their own campus community. Our annual emerson fellowship program enables students to take leadership roles on campuses across the us and canada, and most recently in the uk and brazil. We now have over 125 emerson fellows on campus each year, whom we support with educational programs, guidance & training, materials, funding, and initiatives for their campuses. Through our emerson fellows and other Standwithus student leaders in the 2018-2019 academic year, we had over 100,000 students at 800+ educational events on over 200 college campuses. We worked in partnership with other excellent organizations to fight the boycott movement and antisemitism against Israel, jews and its multi-faith supporters.in addition to our campus work, we have a separate department dedicated to cultivating leadership in high schools. This growing program engages nearly 100,000 students through our programs each year. We also have a growing middle school program offering curriculum that is already in over 200 middle schools across the united states.
Israel office=========misinformation about Israel and jews have been promoted to young adults in countries around the world. Standwithus opened an office in Israel in 2005 when we realized that we can educate visitors that come to Israel. Our work has grown significantly from working to educate visiting students on birthright and other busses, to working with israeli college and high school students. Having a fully functioning office in Israel enables us to be a resource for materials, for speakers, programs, conferences, missions to Israel, to social media and valuable videos produced in Israel. The resources provided by the Israel office are all for the purpose of disseminating (see schedule o)accurate information about Israel and the jewish people to people of all faiths and ages around the world. We anticipate that this office and our many educational programs will continue to grow each year due to the high demand for our educational and inspirational services. The Standwithus social media department which educates millions of people each week, is managed by our team in Israel. With over 1.3 million fans on our english facebook pages, we are able to reach millions of people each week, often reaching millions each day. We also have facebook pages in other languages, including arabic, which is extremely dynamic and informative to the arab world, reaching one million each week. The educational videos we create and post on youtube, facebook and twitter have achieved millions of views annually.
