NYC, Tues. 4/2: Pack the Stop and Frisk Trial at 500 Pearl St

on Tuesday, April 2, beginning at 9:00AM
Southern District court located @ 500 Pearl St. (lower Man) [directions at bottom of msg.]
Courtroom 15-C

Since March 18, a historic trial has been underway. Floyd v. the City of New York is named after MXGM member David Floyd who testified at the start of the trial on March 18. Another one of MXGM's members, Lalit Clarkson, will also soon be testifying. As many of you know, MXGM is a member organization of the PJ coalition and this trial stands as the most pivotal legal challenge to the discriminatory and racially-biased stop-and-frisk program of the NYPD. Back in 2002, MXGM was heavily involved in supporting the first of these lawsuits known as Daniels v. the City of New York and they have been looked to for their leadership around these issues and cases today. MXGM and PJ have been long time fighters for community control and police accountability and we need YOU to help us continue that fight by coming out to make your presence felt and your voices heard!

We are coming together on Tuesday, April 2 at 9AM and calling on all our members, friends, allies, and community members to join us in the courtroom.

If you can attend the trial, please RSVP on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/605411499486747/
