Join us as we march in solidarity with the Congress of Day Laborers for human rights, dignity, and respect for our communities. Then, support the Congress of Day Laborers and BreakOUT! as we stand in solidarity for increased community input in NOPD policies regarding discriminatory policing and an end to NOPD’s collaboration with Immigrations and Custom Enforcement. The Congress of Day Laborers will be delivering a letter to the Mayor’s Office while BreakOUT! will be delivering a copy of our new report, “We Deserve Better.”
The report is the result of over a year’s worth of research by BreakOUT! members to gather data about LGBTQ youth’s experiences with policing in New Orleans, particularly transgender young women of color. It lays forth recommendations for the City of New Orleans just in time for city budget hearings this month.
All of this will coincide with the U.S. Human Rights Network regional meeting, human rights hearing, and tribunal, happening in New Orleans this weekend.
MARCH GATHERS AT 11AM, CONGO SQUARE, 700 N. RAMPART ST.
