When a news publisher in Arkansas, an attorney in Arizona, and a speech therapist in Texas are told they must choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, they launch legal battles that expose an attack on freedom of speech across 33 states in America. Boycott tells the stories of these “accidental plaintiffs,” providing rich context on the origins of state legislation aimed at silencing boycott efforts in the United States, why these laws came to be, and how activists, lawyers, organizers and everyday citizens like Bahia Amawi, Alan Leveritt and Mikkel Jordahl are now fighting back.
