Do NOPD officers stop you for no reason? Do you think it had a lot to do with the color of your skin, what you were wearing, or where you were?
If this applies to you or someone you know then join us on Thursday May 9, 2013 for STOP THE FRISK: Rally Against Racial & Gender Profiling!
We will be delivering our Public Statement, signed by over 15 local organizations, to Chief Serpas to call for a public meeting about draft policies to end racial & gender profiling.
We are calling on policed people of all ages in New Orleans who are Black, Brown, LGBTQ, and Undocumented to the frontlines as we peacefully demand change to the policies and NOPD practices that push our people into prison and out of our communities.
We will convene at NOPD Headquarters, 715 S. Broad St. at 10:30am sharp.
