March Against IACP

10AM, Thomas Paine Plaza


Rally Outside IACP Conference

12PM, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Called by Philly for REAL Justice as part of #AbolitionWeekend

The International Association Of Chiefs Of Police is coming to have their National convention in Philadelphia. However, we are clear of the damage that these individuals inflict on communities across our country. This weekend, we are standing up, saying no more, and laying the groundwork to abolish this corrupt system of policing we have in the United States. Use the hashtag #AbolitionWeekend to share why you want police forces in your neighborhood abolished!

Police Abolition Teach-In Outside IACP

12PM, Pennsylvania Convention Center


Tell the ADL: End Deadly Police Exchanges

3PM, Pennsylvania Convention Center

from Jewish Voice for Peace – Philadelphia:

TELL THE ADL: END DEADLY POLICE EXCHANGES. Militaristic policing doesn’t make us safe! 

Why will the Anti-Defamation League, a self-professed civil rights leader, have a table at a conference of police chiefs? 

Join JVP Philly for this action outside the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference. We’ll be out there to call on the Anti-Defamation League to stop running exchange programs between U.S. police departments and Israeli military. These exchanges exacerbate racist police violence, militarization, and surveillance both here and in Israel/Palestine.

Policing doesn’t make us feel safe, and we reject safety built on militarized, racist, Islamophobic policing.

We’re working towards a world in which safety for all people is created through community and justice, and not for some people only through violence against others. 

This action is part of the #DeadlyExchange campaign to end police exchanges between the US and Israel. To learn more and get involved with this local campaign email philly@jvp.org.
