Transcending the Israel Lobby
At home and abroad

March 4, 2021 Gala Speakers Dinner and March 5, 2021
Conference at the National Press Club

Our 2020 conference and gala speakers dinner events, originally planned for May 28-29, 2020 are rescheduled until March 4-5, 2021. All tickets for the 2020 event will be automatically transferred to 2021. Please contact Dale Sprusansky with any questions or concerns at

This annual conference at the National Press Club explores the latest research, innovations and tactics for countering the Israel lobby’s damaging policies in the U.S. and around the globe.

This conference has grown to become one of the largest educational events in Washington, DC, attracting nearly 1,000 participants including activists, students, educators, alternative news media, nonprofits, the international community and the private sector. It also provides an excellent opportunity for face-to-face networking. Speakers will analyze:

  1. How Americans are effectively working to overcome Israel lobby demands to violate international law, undermine freedom of speech, reward Israeli militarism and denigrate peaceful Palestinian aspirations.

  2. How voters can both support and field politicians and keep them from succumbing to the lobby’s coordinated campaign contributions and constant pressure for fealty.

  3. Important grassroots legislative and legal battles won by peace and justice allies, how they did it, and how you can, too.

  4. The key differences between Jewish establishment Zionism and Christian Zionism, and common misunderstandings.

  5. How to implement emerging “non-Israel-centric” regional strategies to eliminate the crippling human and financial costs of unending wars.

For the first time ever, we are opening up our traditional “speakers dinner” as a public fund-raising gala! Join keynoters, speakers and surprise special guests for a delicious, educational and uplifting gathering the evening before the conference, on March 4!
