The NYCLU is a public-interest law firm that principally addresses issues involving challenges to a government law, policy or practice affecting the constitutional rights – that is, the civil liberties and civil rights – of a significant number of people arising in New York State. Find out how to get help with such an issue.
The NYPD's stop-and-frisk practices overwhelmingly target young men of color. Indeed, black and Latino young men between the ages of 14 and 24 simply cannot walk in any New York City neighborhood without risking an intimidating and unjustified police encounter.
On Father's Day, tens of thousands of New Yorkers will hold a silent march in Central Harlem to protest the NYPD's unconstitutional and racially discriminatory stop-and-frisk practices. Please join us as we stand in opposition to the NYPD's racial profiling.
The march will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 17 at 110th Street between 5th Ave. and Lenox Ave. at the northern edge of Central Park. We hope to see you there!
