Join the Movement: Bronx Town Hall on Stop-and-Frisk Reform

December 5, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

πŸ“’ **Attention Bronx Residents and Advocates for Justice!** πŸ“’

πŸ—“οΈ **Date Change Alert: Tuesday, December 5th**

Under Mayor Eric Adams, NYPD stop-and-frisk abuses have reached an alarming high, particularly impacting the Bronx’s Black and Latinx communities. The 41st Precinct stands out as the worst offender, with 59% of stops, 68% of frisks, and 75% of searches being conducted illegally. Disturbingly, the true extent remains hidden, as the NYPD isn’t required to report on the vast majority of stops. The time for change is NOW!
