New York City Council Hearing on Community Safety Act
Oct 10 2012 10:00 am
On Wednesday, Oct. 10, the New York City Council's Public Safety Committee will hold the first of three public hearings on the Community Safety Act – landmark civil rights legislation that will ensure that the NYPD treats all New Yorkers with courtesy, professionalism and respect.
The hearing will occur at 10 a.m. at 250 Broadway in Manhattan. This is a crucial opportunity to show Council Members that the Community Safety Act commands widespread and passionate support. If you’re angered by the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk abuses and other discriminatory tactics, then come to the hearing and voice your support for these historic reforms.
