The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles strongly opposes the upcoming UTLA resolution on Israel. This one-sided stance on a complex geopolitical issue alienates members and creates division within public education. The BDS campaign is unjust and antisemitic, denying Israel’s right to exist.

UTLA’s support of BDS is out of touch with the real needs of Los Angeles students and families.
