Canvassing to Transform Public Safety

Jordan Neely was a New Yorker, just us. He was a gifted Michael Jackson impersonator who danced on the subway. And yesterday on the F train at Broadway-Lafayette, he was hungry. Upset. “I don’t have food. I don’t have drink. I’m fed up.” He threw his jacket on the ground. Another man on the train put him in a chokehold, and held him in it for fifteen minutes, killing him. He was strangled — but the city's and mayor's failure to invest in real, essential care are also responsible for killing him.

Please join JFREJ on Sunday afternoon for a public safety canvass in Brooklyn to talk to our neighbors and community members about policing, bystander intervention, transforming public safety, and demanding investments to change the system that killed Jordan Neely.

Following the canvass, we will join the #CareNotCuts picnic in Fort Greene Park.
