Hundreds of Jews march for ‘Black Lives Matter’ in New York

“Led by Jews of color and their allies, nearly 300 marchers calling for greater police accountability wound their way through downtown New York on Thursday night, ending in the arrest of seven activists for civil disobedience.

The evening demonstration came with songs of solidarity and signs in support of the Right to Know Act, a bill before the city council would require New York police officers to identify themselves, like with a business card, during stops and provide more information to citizens about why the stops are happening, and give citizens the right to refuse a search.”
