QUIT!
Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism

Who We Are 

As queers, we are part of an international movement for human rights that encompasses the movement for Palestinian liberation, and all other liberation movements. Since 2000, QUIT! has been one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most active and consistent voices for boycott, divestment & sanctions against Israel.   More.

We are also part of a growing international queer movement to stop "pinkwashing" by the Israeli government and its supporters.  Pinkwashing is a part of the Brand Israel public relations campaign which attempts to hijack the queer movement to promote ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.  We say no!

QUIT has regular bi-weekly meetings to discuss upcoming issues and plan actions. If you want to participate in these meetings, email us to find out when and where.

QUIT also maintains a listserve that sends out periodic updates and announcements of upcoming actions. Subscribe to our listserve.

Frameline: NOW will you get out of bed with Israel?
