Dear Union Brothers & Sisters,

This Thursday, January 12th at 9pm, the STOP Stop and Frisk campaign will attend this event from 7pm – 9pm at Harlem’s historic Abyssinian Baptist Church where Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness will be speaking. After the event, at 9pm, the STOP Stop and Frisk activists will march through Harlem to eventually commit civil disobedience. Activists from the campaign will commit to taking up the NYPD’s time with these arrests in place of the heinous stops and frisks that would normally be going on at this hour.

If anyone can serve as a legal observer, please let me know.  If you have not been trained as a legal observer but would like to serve, please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate and serve!
