A leaked document from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations in 2016 exposes the groups level of involvement in attempting to build what the organization described as a “national movement” to reform local police forces across the U.S.
The document first reveled by Breitbart News, identifies an opportunity in the police killings of African-American men in Ferguson, Staten Island, North Charleston, and Baltimore, however they were never able to move forward like they’ve been able to do today with the death of George Floyd which has now become the catalyst they needed to move the effort along.
The memo was titled “Police Reform: How to Take Advantage of the Crisis of the Moment and Drive Long-Term Institutional Change in Police-Community Practice.”
The information was contained in a 59-page report on an Open Society Foundations’ U.S. Programs board meeting in New York from May 7-9 of 2015.
The document states that the Foundations’ U.S. Programs (USP) was seeking to use “this moment” – meaning the so-called crisis in policing following high profile shootings and charges of racism – to “create a national movement” for police reform.
States the board meeting document:
The federal government is seeking philanthropic support for a number of its initiatives. In addition to seeking support to advance the implementation of the recommendations of the Presidential Taskforce, the White House recently launched the Policing Data Initiative to explore how best to use data and technology to build trust, voice, and solutions to improve community policing. The Department of Justice recently selected the first six cities to host pilot sites for the National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice, which was launched last fall to help repair and strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they serve by exploring strategies intended to enhance procedural justice, reduce implicit bias, and support racial reconciliation.
We are gaining a better understanding of these efforts in order to determine how best USP can use this moment to create a national movement. We have already had a set of preliminary conversations with about a dozen key stakeholders and will undertake a field scan to map the areas of work currently underway to advance police reform, including an assessment of the redundancies and gaps in work, and opportunities for collaboration. As we proceed, we will engage the funder network we helped to establish, the Executive Alliance on Men and Boys of Color, which now includes forty foundations.
The document also identifies reducing incarceration rates as another goal of police reform:
The police killings of African-American men in Ferguson, Staten Island, most recently in North Charleston, Baltimore, and many other American cities, highlight that reform of policing policy and practice must be integral to our criminal justice agenda. Notably, while such reform activities are inextricably linked with our concerns about racial justice and equity, in particular about advancing opportunity for boys and men of color, they are also critically related to our goal of reducing incarceration, given the role that police practices play in bringing people into the justice system.
The memo states Soros-financed groups and activists influenced Obama’s police reform task force. One of the nine members of the task force was Bryan Stevenson, identified on the final task force report itself as “Founder and Executive Director, Equal Justice Initiative.” However, as the Soros document highlights, Stevenson at one time served on the board of the Open Society Foundations’ U.S. Programs. The Foundations’ document also states that a number of Soros-financed organizations gave testimony to Obama’s police reform task force.
The document states:
Perhaps more promising is the taskforce empaneled by President Obama on policing, which developed more than 60 recommendations to provide direct support and guidance to localities on how to improve policing practices. (USP Advisory Board member Bryan Stevenson served as a member of the taskforce and a number of grantees, including NAACP-Legal Defense Fund [LDF], Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights [LCCHR], and others, testified at its hearings.)
Since the release of the taskforce’s recommendations earlier this month, there has been much discussion about how best to ensure effective implementation given the federal government’s limited authority to dictate reform at the local level.
The memo reveals a coalition of Soros-financed groups and other organizations advocating for police reform:
The events of the past several months have understandably led to a wide range of activities, including a variety of advocacy efforts, to respond to the significant challenges in policing that have been exposed and the opportunity to promote meaningful and lasting change. For example, organized under the banner of the Civil Rights Coalition on Police Reform, organizations like the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law, LCCHR, and LDF are advocating for federal reform efforts with a particular emphasis on data collection and transparency and, as noted above, effecting federal funding streams. A variety of other national advocacy organizations, including grantees Advancement Project, PolicyLink, the Center for Popular Democracy, and the ACLU are working to provide advocates with toolkits and resources to help their organizing efforts. Locally based groups such as the Ohio Student Association, the Organization for Black Struggle, the Asian Law Caucus, and the ACLU of New Jersey, to name a few, are advocating for specific reforms at the city and state levels.
It identified Black Lives Matter as central to the national campaign: “Another layer of grassroots and youth-oriented groups like Freedom Side, Ferguson Action, Black Lives Matter, and Million Hoodies Movement for Justice are also advocating for specific reforms.”
Breitbart News first reported that another hacked Soros document confirmed that the Open Society approved $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”
The Open Society also called for a discussion on whether it would be appropriate for the Soros group to try to “shape” Black Lives Matter in the future, that document related.
Federally controlled police is basically the way to federally control populations in the way communist dictatorial states handle their business and have throughout history around the world.
Do you think that it is an accident that the policies of Facebook, Google, and Apple mirror the policies of the government under the control of Barack Obama? Do you think it is not central planning that has created a Marxist media that echoes all required propaganda? And so control of the press is already at hand and next comes the iron grip of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist psychopaths.
Soros’s diabolical schemes of so called “REFORM” are always the same.
- Exploit any racial or political crisis to foment distrust and insurrection, aiming to discredit any legitimately elected leader which may oppose him, such as Donald Trump.
- Take away any local or jurisdictional discretion from the region, and replace it with the dictates of Soros Inspired Globalist traitors who are bought and paid for such as the District Attorneys of LA, San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago etc. etc. etc……..
None of this should be a surprise, because Obama did accidentally reveal his desire for a 2nd army back in 2008, calling for a “civilian national security force” and as you all know Obama is the one actually in control today and they will keep pursuing this until we are subjugated or we send them all packing.
