Caravan for Democracy (CFD) was created in January 2002 by Ronald S. Lauder and Jay Schottenstein.
CFD continues to provide outstanding speakers on college campuses throughout the United States speaking in support of Israel. These 110 compelling speakers have made an impact reaching 120,000 students, faculty and community members.
Positively Israel sends expert speakers and celebrities to college campuses to present how Israel is making the world a better place. Through on-campus programming, students gain an appreciation for innovations that Israel is contributing to the planet, thus fortifying them with positive facts about this small desert nation.
The goal of a CFD Positively Israel campus tour is to reach beyond the Jewish and pro-Israel base. Past visits have included interviews with student newspapers, guest lectures in the classroom, private events with sororities, fraternities, (diverse groups) African-American and women’s groups.
