The Coalition of Hasbara Volunteers (CoHaV) is an Israel advocacy umbrella organisation. The CoHaV website provides the following description:

The Coalition of Hasbara Volunteers, (CoHaV), is an international umbrella organization for the many volunteer Israel advocacy groups around the world. CoHaV promotes cooperation and networking between its group members, and provides a formidable, one-stop advocacy center for sharing source information, real-time media response, advocacy assistance, and coordination of local and international Israel advocacy and activism campaigns and projects.
CoHaV functions as a central hub where members exchange information and assistance on a wide range of Israel advocacy and activism issues. In addition, CoHaV provides a forum to discuss ideas about concerted response to media negativity about Israel, and to develop new Israel advocacy campaigns and projects. Members work together on coordinated campaigns, as well as independently, thereby retaining each member's autonomy and specific purpose, outlook and goals.
Formed in March 2003, under the leadership of Candy Shinaar, CoHaV now has a wide network of grassroots Israel advocacy groups, effectively coordinating the efforts of several thousand activists in Israel, Europe, the UK, Australia, the Americas, and South Africa.[1]

An extensive list of CoHaV supporters can be found on their website.[1]
