As I’m sure you are aware, there has been a lot of talk in the papers recently about “stop and frisk” policies at the NYPD. For many of us living in Brownstone Brooklyn, it’s not always evident how these policies impact our day-to-day life.
When you dig into this issue a bit deeper – as Monday’s event will do – there’s a lot more beneath the surface and the findings are particularly disturbing. In the Park Slope area, for example, there were over 8,000 of these “stop & frisks” last year!
Monday’s town hall meeting will be held at Congregation Beth Elohim, 274 Garfield Place, Brooklyn , NY 11215 (Google map and directions) and includes a great group of guest speakers including New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, Council Member Brad Lander, Dr. Delores Jones-Brown of John Jay College, Udi Ofer of NYCLU, and more.
