EMERGENCY CALL, 1PM: Bloomberg Vetoed NYPD Reform; Make Some Noise with Us at City Hall
Sorry for the last-minute notice, but sometimes history happens fast.
Really, Bloomberg?? You vetoed a BAN ON RACIAL PROFILING??? We know you're gonna be unemployed next year - are you looking for a job as sheriff of a Southern town in the 1950's?
So of course we're not going to take this lying down. And we hope you'll help us make some noise.
Join us this afternoon to tell Bloomberg
If you can't make it this afternoon, YOU CAN STILL DO SOMETHING!!!! To take action (including contacting your Council Member) to ensure that the Mayor's veto is overridden, visit our take action page here.
Before vetoing both bills, the Mayor ignored calls by City Council Members to hold a public hearing to listen to the voices of New Yorkers affected by police profiling, discrimination, and lack of NYPD accountability. For a full statement from Communities United for Police Reform on the Mayor's veto, click here. The bills now head back to the City Council where Council Members will have an opportunity to override the veto.
