September 27: Rally for NYPD Accountability & Community Safety

September 27 Rally Flyer

On Thursday, September 27 Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) member, supporter and partner organizations will hold an Advocacy Day at City Hall to highlight the harm that stop-and-frisk abuses and related discriminatory policing practices have on communities.  We will also be advocating for the passage of the Community Safety Act, a NYC Council legislative package reform package that aims to secure real NYPD accountability and transparency.

The Advocacy Day will kick off with a Rally for NYPD Accountability and Community Safety, at 11:30am on the Broadway side of City Hall Park. Following the rally, New Yorkers will participate in pre-scheduled visits with City Council Members to share their experiences of discriminatory policing and to call for passage of the Community Safety Act legislative package.

With special guest performers and speakers:

Talib Kweli, Jasiri X, Meatloaf Muzik
Ben Jealous, NAACP; Tamika D. Mallory, National Action Network; Kyle Bragg 32BJ; Stuart Applebaum, RWDSU
