What is the ACCESS 20/20 Weekend?

The ACCESS 20/20 Conference is an unparalleled opportunity to network, train and activate global young Jewish leaders. Building on the momentum of the groundbreaking 2011 conference that brought international Jewish activists together from across the political spectrum to jointly tackle Israel’s delegitimization, the ACCESS 20/20 Conference 2012 will focus on positioning Jewish activists who are part of ACCESS, and select guests from around the world, to be the most articulate and effective advocates for Israel and the best representatives of a new generation of Jewish leaders.
