The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.”
The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police.
“Policing is a violent institution that must end,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.”
Violent crime has surged dramatically in many large cities across the United States this year, including in areas where Soros has spent large sums of money electing Democratic candidates who have promised to ease sentencing requirements and implement relaxed bail reform laws.
在 2018, 索罗斯 spent millions of dollars to help elect current Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon who promised to implement sentencing reforms and decriminalize certain illegal activities. 在 2021, the Los Angeles City Council redirected funds from the LAPD to social outreach organizations.
费城, where Soros spent 几乎 $ 2 百万 electing District Attorney Larry Krasner, currently has the highest murder rate per capita among the 10 largest cities in the country and homicides have risen 35% 今年.
“When George Soros funded scores of elections for 检察官 who have no intention 的 prosecuting criminals and every intention of prosecuting police officers, he knew exactly what he was doing,” host of Fox News’ 生活, Liberty and Levin 马克·莱文 说过 about Soros last year. “He was funding a counter-revolution in the U.S.”
