2. End gun violence by addressing the root causes
3. Defuse the NYPD
The NYCHA Black Rally demands that New York City, New York StateTogether with the federal government, all activities and living conditions and repairs for the tenants of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) will be stopped and healthy and sustainable living conditions will be funded immediately. NYCHA is and has always been a community of mostly low-income black residents and families, which is seen as a cause of delays in providing much-needed products. The event includes additional calls to action and hopes to raise awareness and call for communities across NYC to come together to end gun violence. This is a point of contention where the causes of such violence are consistently ignored and glossed over by government officials in the black community. The third demand of the event is one that has been noisy lately. The NYCHA Black Rally demands that the NYPD continue to be defused and that the NYPD take drastic measures to ensure changes that will result in the true security and protection of the NYPD New York City Black communities.
The speakers at the event include:
- Jamell Henderson – Organizer of House of Henderson
- Hakeem Jeffries – 8th District Congressman
- NYCHA students + NYCHA residents
- Alicka Ampry-Samuel – 41st District Councilor and NYCHA Committee Chair and NYC Council member
- Jabari Brisport, Elected Senator of the 25th Ward
- Khaleel Anderson – Elected MP for the 31st district
“The residents of NYCHA are real people. Like me. There is a gross misconception that the residents are ghetto, uneducated gangbangers, when in reality the rent in NYC is too high for many to meet their basic needs without moving into low-income apartments This is not an uncommon cry. This is not a new problem. The fact that NYCHA is predominantly black and must be ignored is another symptom of the systematic oppression that black people experience on a daily basis. ” States Jamell Henderson – Creator and Chief Organizer of the Black NYCHA Rally. We demand that our residents must be met, that weapons reform be carried out to ensure the safety of our communities and our youth. We also continually call for the NYPD to be deprived of funding, which has proven to be effective not in policing black communities or responding to our needs as public servants, but as tyrants and tormentors. “
Other event organizers and supporters include NYCC, Housing Justice Coalition, Black Lives Strategies, The Black Code Revolution, Voices of Black Powher, Walk Away Sis Podcast, The United Mexicans of America, Mic Check Collective, New York Civilian Defense, and Black Lives Matter Brooklyn.
