Boycott weaves together the stories of a news publisher, an attorney and a speech therapist, who, when forced to choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, launch legal battles that expose an attack on freedom of speech across 33 states in America. 

 

Americans have a long history of harnessing boycotts to drive social and political change, from farmworkers to civil rights leaders to anti-apartheid activists. But in recent years, state legislators have passed laws that penalize individuals and companies for choosing to boycott Israel due to its human rights record. Flying under the radar, the laws are now being used as a template for legislation designed to silence voices of dissent on a whole range of issues, from climate change to gun control and beyond. Boycott is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of the anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up for our right to voice dissent.
