Hillary Clinton’s Nonprofit Gave $75,000 to Far-Left Extremist Group Trying to Dismantle Minneapolis Police Department
Hillary Clinton’s non-profit funneled $75,000 to a far-left extremist group that is working to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.
Clinton’s organization, Onward Together, was launched in 2017 to oppose then-President Donald Trump.
According to a report from Fox News, sometime between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021, Onward Together gave Alliance for Youth Action a general support grant.
The AYA’s website refers to local law enforcement as a “publicly-funded policing system that was founded on slave patrols and continues to target and murder Black people.”
The site also ironically calls out the “progressive funding ecosystem that funnels money to Black youth organizations during federal election cycles and then retreats and remains silent when it’s time to fund local issue campaigns and hold elected officials accountable.”
“Centering Black people in our work means it is time to divest from police, and invest in Black futures. Defunding the police as part of the path towards abolition is one of the many steps that must be taken to ensure that Black people are able to thrive,” the organization says in their mission statement.
“As a network, we commit to ongoing learning about abolition, dismantling of white supremacy, and decentering of whiteness in our work,” the group states. “For individual organizations, this work includes providing extensive training on anti-racism for staff, focusing on issues that disproportionately impact people of color, incorporating racial justice and intersectional language in messaging, and integrating anti-racism into every aspect of the work including strategic plans.”
Fox reports that “in its 2021 annual report, the alliance also boasts that its affiliated Minnesota Youth Collective was a part of the Yes 4 Minneapolis coalition, which sought to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department last year.”
The extremist coalition was successful in getting a measure to dismantle the PD on the ballot, but it was rejected by voters.
The report notes that George Soros’ advocacy nonprofit, the Open Society Policy Center, also gave $500,000 to the campaign,
