Street Safety for Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Youth! This pocket sized 'Know Your Rights' guide breaks down changes that happened to the NYPD's Patrol Guide in 2012. These changes, advocated for by Streetwise and Safe and others, address some of the abuses faced by trans and gender non-conforming individuals during police interactions.

FIERCE Pride Copwatch
Every year FIERCE engages in copwatch during Pride. The celebration of pride came after the Stonewall Riots – June 28th 1969 – a moment where trans and queer folks of color were fighting back against the police who consistently raided and detained community members in their safe spaces. During PRIDE, the cops are present and we want to provide copwatch to make sure our community is safe and able to have a great time without police harassment.
If you would like to help FIERCE conduct Copwatch, email FIERCE's Police Accountability Organizer, Lee at lee [at] fiercenyc.org.
