From National JVP:
A leaked ADL memo shows us that our collective organizing is working: in June 2020, at the height of Black-led uprising against police violence, staff at the ADL wrote a memo recommending an end to their police exchange programs. In it, they admit their trips militarize the police, and detail the years of our campaigning that have made the program incredibly costly and controversial to them.
This is a huge victory, built by decades of Black and Palestinian movement building, and brought home through the sustained pressure of a targeted, unrelenting grassroots campaign rooted in local communities and coalitions. However, the ADL is now doubling down on their deep relationship with police and even talking about expanding these programs.
