A communist-tied activist group promoting protests over the recent death of New York City homeless man Jordan Neely has received significant funding from organizations bankrolled by liberal billionaires.

Neely died after Marine Daniel Penny restrained him by the neck on a subway train on May 1 when he reportedly acted erratically, with the incident sparking protests and calls for Penny to serve prison time. Voices of Community Activists and Leaders (VOCAL) New York, an organization with members who participated in a protest on Wednesday over Neely’s death, and published a statement saying he was “lynched,” previously took large donations from groups that George Soros and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg funded.

The Soros-chaired Open Society Foundations gave VOCAL New York just over $982,000 in contributions from 2017 to 2021. Of that funding, $100,000 was explicitly intended to support Vocal New York’s Housing Justice for All project, which teamed up with the Communist Party USA’s New York Young Communist League to oppose evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.:snip:
