Public sentiment is strongly against stop-and-frisk but this racist policy won’t end unless we do something about it. On Wednesday, we held a press conference where Cornel West, Carl Dix, and other activists voiced their opposition to stop-and-frisk. They announced that on September 13 people everywhere will “Blow the Whistle on Stop-and-Frisk” so no one’s rights will be trounced on in silence.
We need your help. We only have a few hours left to raise the funds we need to get 20,000 whistles and flyers for Sept. 13, the day we will all blow the whistle on stop and frisk. So far we have raised $3403, good but not enough. We can reach our goal of $6000 if everyone clicks now, watches the video, adds a comment, shares with friends and donates generously. We now have some new perks… the Bronx Bolo (see Noche’s button/whistle combo) and a couple of items donated by Cornel — check them out! Let’s make this happen.
