Many AIPAC-trained activists won Student Government office for the first time last year, while others now advise campus leaders on issues of importance to the pro-Israel community. Activists invited more than 40 members of Congress to address campus audiences on the importance of a strong U.S.-Israel relationship, and in some cases pro-Israel students even helped facilitate the wider community’s efforts to reach out to specific lawmakers.
