Jewish Voice for Peace has deep concerns about the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) participating in the Starbucks racial bias training.
The ADL has a long history of anti-Arab, anti-Muslim, and anti-Palestinian advocacy and at a minimum has shown profound insensitivity toward Black communities.
The ADL’s aggressive support of Israel often comes at the cost of the human and civil rights of Palestinians. The organizations that train Starbucks should care equally for the rights and safety of all of Starbucks customers.
Jewish Voice for Peace is a national, grassroots organization inspired by Jewish tradition to work for a just and lasting peace according to principles of human rights, equality and international law for all the people of Israel and Palestine. JVP has over 200,000 online supporters, over 70 chapters, a youth wing, a Rabbinic Council, an Artist Council, an Academic Advisory Council, and an Advisory Board made up of leading U.S. intellectuals and artists.
