DCCC Internal Memo: Listen to BLM Activists in Small Groups, Don’t Offer Concrete Policy

Troy Perry, a leader of the DCCC or Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington DC, gave advice to those who would have to deal with #BlackLivesMatter (BLM) in a secret memo released by the DNC leaker today.

Troy Perry disappeared from Twitter, but he used to have an account.

The November 2015 memo calls BLM a “radical” group. Bullet point suggestions are made for those running for Congress when “approached” by BLM:

  • Listen to their concerns
  • Don’t offer support for concrete policy positions
  • Frontline district staff should meet with activists

Meetings should be in “personal or small groups.”

Finally, this is a top secret document, bolded in original:

This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.

Here is the email memo:
