In the wake of extremist attempts to encourage divestment from Israel at the University of Southern California, SC Students for Israel (SCSI) was led by Hasbara Fellows, Shanel Melamed and Stephanie Aziz, who spoke out on behalf of Israel in the campus newspaper and have continued to organize pro-active and positive pro-Israel initiatives. This month is officially "Israel Block Party" at USC, and the party is moving ahead at full speed.

Earlier this month, the pro-Israel community at UCLA woke up to alarming news. Efforts to boycott, divest, and sanction Israel had come to the campus. They found out from the campus paper. There was no warning. Pro-Israel activists, including three Hasbara Fellows on campus, mobilized and saved the day. Nim Nahum and Ashley Strain tell the story.
