January Subway-Petition Day

Check out Tanay Warekar‘s article discussing PROP’s January petition day in the subways.

PROP Petitioning to Implement Stop-and-Frisk Changes

“Volunteers with the Police Reform Organizing Project, an advocacy group that works to end discriminatory police practices, gathered at the Union Square subway station and several other stations to collect signatures for a petition putting pressure on the city to set up an independent agency that would monitor the NYPD’s operations.

’It’s not just about stop-and-frisk but about bad police practices,’ said Robert Gangi, the director of the organization. ‘We have to raise concerns about harassment of homeless people, LGBT youth, sex workers, street vendors and the mentally ill.’”

Our next petition day is set for Saturday, April 12th.
