What is KnightPAC:
KnightPAC is a pro-Israel organization, filled with students who are AIPAC-trained, that works to support a strong US-Israel relationship through direct political involvement. AIPAC stands for American Israel Pubic Affairs Committee and is a bipartisan organization committed solely to strengthening, protecting, and promoting the US-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of the United States and Israel. AIPAC is also the largest pro-Israel lobby in America. We, as KnightPAC, work to spread AIPAC’s message in our local communities and campus’s, in a bipartisan manner. We work to build relationships with members of Congress and lobby them throughout the year. We hold events for student leaders, go to networking events in the Orlando community, and take part in several conferences in Washington D.C, each year!! AIPAC is transitioning some of there conferences online due to COVID-19 at the moment. The first online event is AIPAC’s Summer Leadership Saban conference. Applications are due July 13th at 11:59pm. For more information and to apply, go to this website: https://apply.aipacldevents.org/.
Throughout the year, we also partner with Hillel on a multitude of events, such as our Congressional Shabbat Services, where we bring elected members of the House of Representatives and Senate to campus to meet leaders and join us for Shabbat dinner. We also partner with them on our Semesterly Leadership Banquet, where we bring in 50 student leaders, from Student Government, RSO’s, Athletics, and Greek Life, and have a renowned speaker on the US-Israel relationship speak to start conversations and inform future and current leaders about the US-Israel relationship. Each semester, KnightPAC also sets out to accomplish 3 initiatives which are set by AIPAC. This past Spring semester, we had to engage our member of congress in some way, send campus representatives to all Spring conferences, and get more student activists involved with our Congressional member, otherwise known as “Campus to Congress.” We will be getting our Fall initiatives at AIPAC’s Summer Saban Conference.
