The next gathering of PROP’s city wide coalition, New Yorkers for Police Reform, will take place on Thursday, November 21st from 6 to 8 p.m at the Urban Justice Center. These gatherings offer an excellent opportunity for people to meet others who share their concerns and explore ways to join the movement to change police practices in New York City. The meeting will focus on the future plans and strategies of both PROP and CAN for advancing their agendas for sweeping police reforms with the new city policy makers: Mayor de Blasio, Public Advocate James and City Council leaders. PROPers will discuss and plan such future actions as: meetings with government officials; outreach to high school and college students and teachers; in-and -outdoor petition drive days; new reports on the specific and substantive reforms needed now and on the race of people killed by the NYPD since 1999; videos and written narratives, featuring New Yorkers relating their accounts of harsh police encounters; and additional art pieces, essays, and poems for the Youth Speakout page on PROP’s website. Our plans are many and far-reaching – we welcome all interested persons to join us on November 21st and to lend their support and presence to the city-wide movement to create a just, safe, and livable city for all New Yorkers.
The meeting will be held at the Urban Justice Center, 123 William Street, 16th Floor, New York, NY. Click the image below to RSVP:
