Let’s make visible these exchanges and their impacts on our communities, and learn together about the systems they are part of. As the campaign evolves, we’ll let you know of new and exciting ways to be part of the effort!
To the Anti-Defamation League:
Do not host another National Counter Terrorism Seminar or Advanced Training School. Dispatching US law enforcement to trade tactics with Israeli police and military agents defends and deepens Israel’s systems of military occupation, and exacerbates the existing crisis of police violence in the US.
These Deadly Exchanges have no place in an organization claiming to protect civil rights for all.Sign the Petition
Hold a Teach-in
Help your community develop a deeper understanding of how exchange programs function and support repression in the US and in Israel/Palestine. The more people develop confidence talking about exchanges the better we’ll all do at growing the campaign. Let’s learn together about these deadly exchanges, the systems they are part of, and why we must resist them to reclaim real safety for our communities.

Help Us Research
Help us stop the deadly exchange of worst practices between US police departments and the Israeli government. These exchanges promote and extend discriminatory, repressive, and violent policing and surveillance. In order to put an end to these exchanges, we need to know where they are happening and who is participating — and that’s where you come in. Will you help us do the research?

This campaign is a direct response to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions call from Palestinian civil society, as well as the Vision For Black Lives Policy Platform call to divest from deadly systems and invest in education, health, and safety of Black people. We also see this campaign as complementary to the defense and expansion of the definition of sanctuary to mean safety led by groups like Mijente.
