Deadly Exchange: What are the US police learning in Israel?
April 7, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
At this JVP-Boston meeting, Eran Efrati, Executive Director of Researching the American-Israeli Alliance (RAIA), will share his research about Israel’s role in the militarization of US police. Since 2002, thousands of US law enforcement officials — including many from Massachusetts — have trained with Israeli military forces, learning about Israeli methods and technologies of surveillance, racial profiling, and suppression of protest. Efrati will discuss how RAIA research can be used to power campaigns to resist the racist, violent practices enhanced by these exchanges. We will also update participants about current JVP-Boston activities.
The event will take place in the Mandela Room of the Democracy Center which is wheelchair accessible. The wheelchair ramp is on the DeWolfe St side of the building and opens into the Mandela room.
