The NYPD and You

  • Mar 23, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • John H. Holmes Community House

Recent revelations in a series of stories by the Associated Press have exposed a joint NYPD-CIA spy program targeting Muslim communities within New York City and beyond.  Join us as we discuss the nature of this program along with the various responses from different segments of the Muslim community, politicians, civil rights groups, and others.

Mayor Bloomberg and Ray Kelly have repeatedly and vigorously denied that this program amounts to racial and/or religious profiling, but what do NYPD documents say?  The mayor and police commissioner have insisted that the NYPD only follows leads, but leaked NYPD documents directly contradict these claims or suggest that racial and religious criteria alone are now considered leads in these cases.

What can be done?  What is being recommended if the NYPD should show up at your door?  How can you find out if the NYPD has spied on you or your community organization or family business?  

We'll be talking about these topics and will have plenty of time for open discussion so bring your thoughts, ideas, and opinions and join us!

    The way I look at it, if there's nothing to hide then who cares.
