The people in my community of Flushing, Queens, like New Yorkers in various other neighborhoods across the city, are tired of getting targeted and harassed by the NYPD. Police frequently approach people without identifying themselves or providing any justification. Despite the decline in the number of reported stops by the NYPD, there are many policing interactions initiated by officers that are going unrecorded. In these incidents, officers just do whatever they want without any accountability or transparency.
Help rid NYC streets of abusive, discriminatory policing by coming to the Right To Know Act rally on October 11th! Communities United for Police Reform and a citywide coalition of over 200 organizations are calling for the New York City Council to pass the Right to Know Act into law to help end police abuses. It would promote police accountability in New Yorkers' most common interactions with the NYPD to prevent abuses and unconstitutional searches that continue in communities across the city.
