Summer Happenings at PROP
PROP is excited to announce our upcoming summertime events! All of which, are part of our efforts to expose the harmful consequences of Commissioner Bratton’s “broken windows” policing and to monitor progress of the de Blasio Administration’s regarding police reform.
Public PROP Meeting:
At our next public meeting, we will discuss, the plans for carrying out PROP’s newest initiative, the Court Monitoring Project and announce the panelists for our July 31st public forum, presenting a 6 month assessment of policing practices during the de Blasio/Bratton tenure. Lastly, we will coordinate the locations of PROP’s upcoming Petition Day and give updates on CAN’s summer outreach campaign. Meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 30th at 6:00pm.
The Panel Discussion:
PROP is excited to announce our 8th public panel discussion: Broken Windows Policing: A True Tail of Two Cities, on Thursday, July 31st at 6:00pm. Panelists will debate whether NYPD practices have changed for better, worse, or at all, under the new leadership of Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton. The discussion will focus on this Administration’s ‘broken windows’ policing and the effect of this approach on different neighborhoods across our city. The event will be held at The Ethical Cultural Society (2 W 64th St).
*Panelists – TBA
On Sunday, August 2nd from 1 to 5 PM, PROP volunteers will travel to different locations in the city to carry out our ongoing petition drive to show policymakers and the press, that the support for sweeping NYPD reforms is diverse and widespread. Signatures collected during our Petition Day will be added to the list of nearly 17,000 people who have signed their support. Anyone interested in participating in this activity should contact Bob Gangi at 917-327-7648 or 212-519-3532 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
