Silent protest to end “stop and frisk”

Father’s Day is a wonderful day to stand up for ourselves and our neighbors. Hope you will consider going to this historic event. And, think about bringing your father along!

Silent March To End Stop and Frisk
Sunday, June 17th at 3pm in New York City
(with buses from Long Island)

The website for this march is at:
www.silentmarchnyc.org

This march has been supported by  many of the groups we follow: NYCLU, NAACP, UFPJ, etc.

For buses from Long Island, contact the Eastern Long Island NAACP at: elibnaacp AT aol DOT com

Details and info from a UFPJ e-mail:

Next Sunday, June 17th, tens of thousands of New Yorkers will march down Fifth Ave. demanding an end to stop and frisk.

Our hope is that this event will be so large that the media will no longer be able to ignore the growing movement demanding changes in policing practices in NYC. Momentum is building – over 230 organizations have already endorsed June 17th – and what we do in these next few days will determine whether this will be a big march, or a tremendous one.

Can you join us? Will you help get the word out about this timely and important mobilization?

Here are the details:
