It’s fall. Sweater time. And time for one last cookout on the Picture the Homeless patio. We’ll be firing up the grill. And we’ll have a decorating station to make your sweater extra festive. Prizes for the most creative!
Suggested donation $10. (More if you can.) For Facebook users, click here to RSVP.
If you can’t make it to the event, but would still like to give, you can make a donation here: http://
Why: This is a fundraiser for our civil rights internship program which provides stipends to PTH members, who are homeless themselves, to monitor the behavior of the police. Using a special survey, the interns are gathering the facts and the stories we need to counter the mayor’s and NYPD’s distortion of homeless people’s lives — and to stop the abuse. NYPD Commissioner Bratton, under edict from Mayor de Blasio, has just announced the creation of a special 38-cop squad to police the homeless in East Harlem.
