Sponsored by Fordham Students, Alumni and Friends Against NYPD Surveillance of Muslim Communities

The Fordham Muslim Law Students Association is leading an effort to organize a mass protest outside their law school’s annual alumni luncheon.  A letter has been sent to the President of Fordham University and Dean of the Law School in opposition to this invitation, with signatures of Fordham alumni, students and supporters.  Please join us in solidarity against the racist policies of the NYPD this Saturday, as we demand the resignation of NYPD Commissioner Kelly who unabashedly violates the civil liberties of Muslim New Yorkers and students, through the illegal practice of ‘Stop & Frisk’ largely on minority communities, and by the violent suppression of “Occupy Wall Street”.

Members of the CUNY community are attending in solidarity. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/305281112858919/
