WHEN: Tuesday, October 15 | 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
WHERE: The ADL Headquarters | 605 Third Avenue (between 39th and 40th Streets)

The Jewish holiday of Sukkot teaches us that we keep each other safe not by building walls around us, but by creating structures of sanctuary. On Tuesday, Oct. 15th, we take to the streets in opposition to white supremacy and fascism, declaring “never again for anyone.”

Join us to build a People’s Sukkah and tell the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to stop bringing together police, ICE, border agents, and military forces from the U.S. and Israel to exchange violent tactics.

In 2017, we delivered a petition with 20,000 signatures demanding the ADL, a self-proclaimed “civil rights organization,” end these deadly exchanges. Last Chanukah, while the ADL was running one of these trips, 400 Jews and friends gathered at their headquarters here in NYC to shine a light on these police exchanges and celebrate the power of people’s movements. Yet the ADL continues to betray the Jewish values that we hold most dear.

The tide is turning and we are winning: Durham city council voted to stop sending their police on these exchanges, and the city of Northampton and state of Vermont pulled their police off these trips. In this moment of escalating white supremacy and fascism, we choose to build a sukkah of solidarity.

Join us.
