Father's Day Silent March to End Stop and Frisk
This Sunday (Father’s Day), join your PSC colleagues at the Silent March to End Stop and Frisk to help show that we refuse to let the children of New York City—or anyone else—be victimized by racial profiling. CUNY students are among the targets of Stop and Frisk, which actively seeks to humiliate innocent citizens—particularly African American and Latino men. One such young man, Nicholas K. Peart, a 23-year old BMCC student, shared his feelings after being repeatedly stopped and frisked in a New York Times piece published in December 2011.
Members of the many labor, civil rights, faith, and community groups sponsoring the silent march will begin gathering at 2:00pm on West 110th St. between Central Park West/8th Ave. and Fifth Ave. PSC members will meet at 2:00pm at the south east corner of 111th St and Lenox Ave.
At 3:00pm the march will begin at 110th St. and Fifth Ave. It will proceed south on Fifth Ave. to 78th Street.
