Come join us for our April General Meet. We will be revving up for our upcoming chapter elections in May, as well as highlighting some of the work your fellow Las Vegas DSA comrades have been up to.

We will also be going over the upcoming elections in May, which means we will be looking for eager and principled members who want to oversee the elections. We are looking for people to be involved in the Nominations Committee. These are folks who will oversee the electoral process and establish guidelines and rules as to how the election will be run. If you think this is you, please feel free to message us or email us at lasvegasdsa@gmail.com

If you would like to add anything to the agenda to be discussed, please email or message us!

Why Does ADL Hate Palestinians?

ADL’s Blind Spot and the Deadly Exchange

ADL promotes itself as a leader against hate and injustice but is consistently silent when Palestinian civilians are attacked by settlers, terrorized by Israeli police, jailed by unjust military courts and robbed of their homes and land by the Israeli occupation.

The ADL not only ignores Palestinian human rights, through the Deadly Exchange it encourages these violations by sponsoring the National Counter-Terrorism Training Seminar (NCTS), a police exchange program between Israel and the US that promotes worst practices targeting communities of color.

Through the ADL, thousands of U.S. police officers, sheriffs, ICE officers, border patrol and FBI agents have trained with Israeli military and police forces under the banner of “counter-terrorism.” This exchange encourages paramilitary tactics in US policing and brings U.S. racist “broken windows” policies to the Israeli military and police.

ADL supports moving the US embassy to Israel to Jerusalem – in violation of international law – while ignoring Palestinian claims to Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital.

ADL reinforces practices of racial profiling, mass surveillance, police brutality, and suppression of political dissent with deadly force. NTSC exchanges rely on a dangerous myth, steeped in white supremacy, that safety for some can be achieved through violence against others.

If the ADL aspires to be one of the nation’s leading civil rights organizations, it must recognize Palestinian human rights and end the #DeadlyExchange.
