About the Event

 

Israeli activist attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner has been leading  the legal fight against terror financing, the anti-Israel boycott  campaigns (BDS) and combating the multitude of lawfare tactics utilized  against the Jewish State by its enemies. As the president of the Israel  based civil rights organization, Shurat HaDin-Israel Law Center, she has  represented hundreds of terror victims in legal actions against terror  organizations, their financial backers and proxies. Ms. Darshan-Leitner  has successfully recovered more than $300 million dollars in  compensation on their behalf. In recent years, Ms. Darshan-Leitner  initiated a legal campaign to deprive terrorists of social media  resources such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, which they use to  incite violence against Jews and promote terror attacks. In her efforts  to combat anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli activities, Ms. Darshan-Leitner  assisted in blocking the Gaza Flotilla, terminated efforts to indict  IDF soldiers for war crimes, and filed legal actions against those who  boycott Israeli academics and companies in violation of the law.

In  2016 and again in 2018, Ms. Darshan-Leitner was chosen as one of the 50  most influential Jews in the world by the Jerusalem Post and named by  the Israeli Forbes magazine as one of the 50 most influential Israeli  women. A mother of six including triplets, Ms. Darshan-Leitner is a  graduate  of  the  Bar-Ilan University Faculty of Law and holds an MBA   from Manchester University.
