The fight for City Council to finally pass the Right to Know Act is absolutely crucial. We need these reforms in order to empower our neighbors and communities against unlawful searches and misconduct from law enforcement.
Rally to Demand NYC Council Pass the #RightToKnowAct!
October 11, 2017, 12:00pm - October 11, 2017, 2:00pm
Rally to demand NYC Council pass the #RightToKnowAct, a legislative package that will help prevent abusive policing and help hold the NYPD accountable in the most frequent interactions New Yorkers have with police. The first bill would require officers to identify themselves and explain the reason for the official interaction. The second bill would help end deceptive and unconstitutional searches by requiring officers to explicitly convey a person’s right to refuse a search when their consent is the only legal justification, and obtain objective proof that a person gave informed and voluntary consent.
