I’m a member leader with JVP - New York City and I’m writing to let you know about some concerning information that three progressive Jewish organizations uncovered.

The Jewish Communal Fund of NY, a donor-advised fund that contributes to many worthwhile organizations, also funds some of the most virulent Islamophobes in the country:

  • Pamela Geller, who writes that Islam “is an extreme ideology, the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth”;
  • The Clarion Project, which funds virulently anti-Muslim films;
  • David Horowitz, whom the Southern Povery Law Center calls “the godfather of the modern anti-Muslim movement”;
  • Steven Emerson, who forged a “dossier” linking American Muslim groups with terrorism; and
  • Daniel Pipes, who claims Muslims wish to “impose Islamic law [in the United States].”

These players are key in what’s often called “the Islamophobia network in America.” They skew the media’s perceptions and fuel the kind of anti-Muslim racism that is a backdrop to the kind of terrifying violence Arabs and Muslims face every day.

Tell the JCF to quit funding hate.

Our three organizations recently released a report documenting how the JCF funded anti-Muslim hate groups to the tune of over $2 million between 2013 and 2017.

JCF has the power – and obligation – to stop funding Islamophobia. Its rules give it the right to reject any and all grant recommendations, which includes individual donors who designate a specific organization for funding.

Will you sign our petition calling on the JCF to defund Islamophobia?

We’ve asked the JCF to sit down with us many times to discuss this, first privately and then publicly, but they haven’t responded.

We need your support to request that they take this seriously. Sign our petition to demand they defund anti-Muslim racism.

Thanks for joining us.
