NFL Funds “Defund The Police” Organization


This just in, the NFL has been funding organizations known to promote the “abolishment of police.”

As others have pointed out, the leftist leaning organization supporting social justice programs is no surprise, but actually funding groups that support defunding the police?

That has not been released for public knowledge, until now.

Fox News did some digging and released their findings:

The National Football League’s “Inspire Change” partners, which receive financial backing from the multibillion-dollar league, include multiple groups that have openly advocated for defunding the police, a Fox News Digital review of the program found.

Groups who have received funds as part of “Inspire Change,” the NFL’s social justice initiative, include the Vera Institute of Justice, the Oregon Justice Resource Center and the Community Justice Exchange. All three of those groups support defunding or abolishing the police, a review of their public statements shows.

While the NFL’s general support of social justice causes is widely known, the fact that the league is propping up groups trying to defund police departments has not been previously reported.

The NFL gave $300,000 to the Oregon Justice Resource Center (OJRC), the group disclosed to local media. It’s unclear how much the NFL gave to the Vera Institute of Justice and Community Justice Exchange, though the NFL has donated tens of millions of dollars as part of the “Inspire Change” program, according to the league.

“The Community Justice Exchange is working towards a world without prisons, policing, prosecution, surveillance or any form of detention or supervision,” the group states on its website. Its work includes publishing a roadmap to “prison abolition.”

Here are some reactions to the breaking news:

This is just the cherry on top of everything else they’ve been doing, between demanding vaccinations for their employees, allowing players to take a knee during the national anthem and now funding organizations that promote literal anarchy?

It’s well past the time people need to boycott the NFL.

They need to start hurting financially and get canceled already.
