Monday: Pack the courtroom to challenge stop-and-frisk!

court-supportThis coming Monday, March 18, Floyd v. City of New York will go to trial. The Floyd trial, which challenges New York City’s stop-and-frisk practices as racially discriminatory and unconstitutional, marks the culmination of more than a decade’s work by CCR on issues of abusive policing.

Help pack the courtroom starting Monday at 10am: 500 Pearl Street, Courtroom 15-C (please come at least 30 minutes early to leave time to get through security).

alvinAttorneys in the case will hold a press conference in the morning before the trial begins. An NPR interview with one of the plaintiffs and one of the witnesses in the trial will run on Morning Edition. At lunchtime, community groups will rally and hold a press conference. And when the day is done, CCR will post the first of its daily reports on the trial.

Daily updates will be posted on the CCR website, Facebook and Twitter. Follow and use the hashtag #NYPDonTRIAL to share and retweet our updates and media coverage of the trial.

If you can contribute financially, please donate to support CCR’s work on important issues like the Floyd trial.
