National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Manhattan Chapter
Position on NYPD Stop and Frisk Practices
Press Conference: New York Civil Liberties Union
April 3, 2013
The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Manhattan Chapter wishes to express its concerns regarding the ineffectiveness of the NYPD's Stop and Frisk program. We believe the program disproportionately and unfairly targets teens, young men and women in African American and Latino neighborhoods. The Stop and Frisk program violates individual civil rights, engages police officers in racial profiling and has a negative impact on these communities.
