On June 17th, 2015, FIERCE launched its new campaign, “Quality of Life Bow Down,” with a press conference on the steps of City Hall. FIERCE's Policing Organizer Lee Jimenez led the press conference, with a summary of the campaign, followed by members Bree, Mani, and Angela. FIERCE was also joined by Lillian Rivera, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Carl Charles, American Civil Liberties Union to show support . Members told stories of their own experiences with discriminatory policing, moving a crowd of onlookers.
Every NYC Pride, FIERCE has conducted Copwatch after the parade to ensure that our community was as safe as possible while celebrating our existence and resilience.
