From the Organizers:
On December 18th, the City Council Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on the POST Act, giving the public a chance to tell Council Members why we need the POST Act to fight the NYPD’s surveillance-based stop-and-frisk.
For years, the NYPD built-up an arsenal of powerful and biased spy tools without any public oversight. The POST Act gives our elected lawmakers information on what surveillance tools are being used and how our information is shared with federal agencies like ICE.
Join us on December 18th at 1 pm to tell the City Council that you support the POST Act!
