Protest Illegal "Move Along" Orders — CPR MEMBER EVENT
Join Picture the Homeless (PTH) for a protest of the NYPD’s widespread, illegal practice of telling people perceived as homeless to “move along." Two months have passed since PTH & the NYCLU filed a complaint with the NYC Commission on Human Rights, the first major legal action under the Community Safety Act's ban on profiling people based on their perceived housing status. Hit the streets with PTH to see what New Yorkers have to say about the police routinely violating the rights of their homeless neighbors.
Location: East 41st Street, near 5th Ave.
