The Alameda County Sheriff's Office applied for and received a grant targeting incarcerated Black Muslims in Alameda County, according to the East Bay Express. The Homeland Security CVE, or Countering Violent Extremism program, has been criticized for solely targeting Muslims as susceptible to violence and extremism, while not addressing the rising threat of white supremacists.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Nov 7th, 2018 2:38 PM
The "#StopCVE: Race, Islamophobia, Policing and Mass Incarceration in Alameda County" panel will discuss the CVE grant program, how the "E Pluribus Unum" project in Alameda County came to be, history of surveillance of Muslims, and community efforts to increase transparency in the sheriff's operation of the county's jails and other social service facilities.
