The Program in Detail
With anti-Israel rhetoric intensifying on campus, the CAMERA-supported group program provides educational and financial resources for student activists who want to either create a new Israel group on campus or strengthen their existing, but under-funded Israel group.
Groups and societies supported by CAMERA receive up to $4000/£3000 in resources for speakers, films and other programming a year. Our resources and guidance help you build an effective, autonomous Israel group on campus. Members of CAMERA-supported groups learn life-long skills in debate, writing and public speaking, and benefit from close collaboration with CAMERA scholars. Students receive intensive training at CAMERA’s all expenses paid annual Student Leadership Conference in Boston, where they connect with an international community of like-minded students and activists.Student Leadership Conference
“CAMERA has given us the tools and resources we need to properly fight anti-Israel bias on our campus and engage pro-Israel students in advocacy and education. Through creating a CAMERA-supported group this semester, we have enhanced and grown the pro-Israel community in unprecedented ways.”
“Working with CAMERA this past year has been quite the experience! The support and invaluable experience the CAMERA staff offered truly helped me strengthen the pro-Israel community at the University at Buffalo…CAMERA enabled our group to hit the ground running and demonstrate to our peers and university staff members that we are here to stay. CAMERA has helped me and UBI bring in excellent speakers that have had lasting impacts on my campus. I look forward to continuing my pro-Israel activism and I am thankful for all of CAMERA’s help.”
“Working with CAMERA has been an absolute pleasure this year! They have done an amazing job helping our new club, Mustangs United for Israel, get off its feet and really make an impact on our campus through their funding, providing of apparel and merchandise, as well as their support and ideas. Here at Cal Poly we are so grateful for everything they have done and provided for us and we would never have been able to accomplish as much as we have this year without their incredible help.”
The answer to false speech is not censorship but more true speech. The answer to half-truth is full-truth. The only people who should and do fear CAMERA are those who should and do fear the truth. … [T]he First Amendment was not erected to help the media but to help the people.
“Thank you so much for all of your help this year with everything! So many of our events were made possible by support and funding from you guys, and we really cannot thank you enough for all that you do.”
