Pride Season is here and we know how much the po' loves to pick at us when we're celebrating ourselves. So we need everyone's help in trying to keep our people's safe for Pride.
For the last fifteen years FIERCE has fought against the brutality of the NYPD towards queer and trans youth of color. FIERCE has done this through direct action organizing in the West Village to maintain a safe space for queer and trans youth of color. During that fifteen years FIERCE has learned that we must take our campaign work to the next level. We have also learned that our approach to dismantling Broken Policing practices of the NYPD must have a root cause analysis.
Stand with The Audre Lorde Project as we march for the 11th Annual Trans Day of Action. More details will follow later this month, but if you would like to support, please attend any one of these Cultural Werk Nights to help with Trans Day of Action prep. Email email@example.com with any questions.
When: Friday, June 26, 2015
Where: Pier 45/Christopher Street Pier
We are tired of our bodies constantly being targeted by the police
It's Time to rise up, empower ourselves and each other, and shut it down
We will no longer be the targets of the police. Young people all over the country are fighting against police brutality/violence. FIERCE is fighting against police brutality here in NYC.
If you identify as a LGBTQ Youth of color between the ages of 13-24, we want you to join us in the struggle for Change.
