Action Against AIPAC to End the Deadly Exchange!

May 7, 2017 5:00PM-7:00PM

Join us in protesting AIPAC at their New England Leadership Dinner! AIPAC is one of many organizations that organize "Deadly Exchange" trips, in which thousands of the highest ranking police officials and law enforcement executives across the US participate in programs in Israel, in which U.S. law enforcement learn counterterrorism tactics from the Israeli military and police. These programs are an opportunity for US and Israeli law enforcement to exchange "worst practices." We believe so called progressive cities must end their participation in these programs.

Join True Story Theatre to develop skills to intervene if you witness identity-based harassment. As the Trump Administration continues its wave of racist, sexist, hateful, anti-Muslim, anti-Jewish, anti-immigrant sentiment, we all need to strengthen our skills to take concrete action to defend our Muslim friends, as well as all of the other communities that are directly impacted by Trump's policies.
