Bloomberg Strikes Back! Emergency Town Hall on Stop and Frisk

This summer Communities united for Police Reform (CPR) achieved two huge victories:

1) The passage of two city council bills within the Community Safety Act under the legislative leadership of Jumaane D. Williams, Letitia James, & Brad Lander that strengthen the profiling ban and appoint an Inspector General. 

2) The Floyd vs City of New York, under the leadership of the Center for Constitutional Rights, ruling confirmed that the widespread race-based stop and frisk practices of the NYPD violated the constitutional rights of Black and Brown New Yorkers.

On October 31, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted the Bloomberg Administration's request for a stay on the stop-and-frisk remedies mandated by the Federal District Court in Floyd v City of New York. 

Bloomberg isn't giving up and neither are we!!

The Malcolm X Grassroots MovementBrooklyn Movement CenterThe Brooklyn NAACP, Brooklyn Alliance for Safer Streets (BASS), and the NYC Food and Fitness Partnership NYC Food will host a town hall meeting on next steps in countering racially biased policing. 

Central Brooklyn residents will have an opportunity to hear from community organizations, attorneys and elected officials on the impact of these two victories, what real changes our communities can expect, and next steps to strengthen community accountability of the NYPD. 

We will also clarify the most recent decision by the 2nd circuit on the Floyd v NYC lawsuit.
