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.
