United Against Black Genocide was an early '80s Communist Workers Party front group.

Liberty Hill Foundation

A 1983 Liberty Hill Foundation grant for $1,000 went to support United Against Black Genocide: “United Against Black Genocide is an organization formed to voice the concerns of the Black community of South Central Los Angeles over inadequate health services in the neighborhood and the chokehold deaths of residents at the hands of the Los Angeles Police Department. UABG is concerned about the pattern of these deaths, in which 14 of the 17 victims have been young Black men, and believes that they are a result of racist attitudes and practices of the police department. This grant was provided to help establish the organization’s office and to promote better health care in the Black community.” Liberty Hill allies have long focused on police violence against Black Angelenos, most recently through our Rapid Response Fund for Racial Justice.[1]
