" Tonight in White Plains, New York the Westchester County Board of
Legislators will consider a resolution, passed 12-1 in committee, to
reject the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign (BDS) as “a movement that seeks to undermine Israel and malign the Jewish people.”
Read a letter from Howard Horowitz of New Rochelle urging the board not
to approve the measure, followed by an alternative measure put forward
by Jewish Voice for Peace in Westchester that praises the BDS campaign
and supports human rights and equality for all peoples in the region. "

legal segregation in public transportation.
