Response #3: disarm – December 8, 2014
Eric Garner and countless others have been murdered by police who are trained in a system that does not value the lives and humanity of the citizens they serve. This is unacceptable.
Join Willing Participant in “disarm,” a performance that will peacefully engage New York City police officers in a dialogue. We’ll meet this Monday, December 8th at 7pm at the SE corner of 49th Street & 6th Avenue in Manhattan. From there, ringleaders Todd Shalom, Niegel Smith and Ben Weber will provide participants with prompts to encourage meaningful conversation with police officers around Times Square. Again, this is a peaceful engagement. Please arrive unencumbered–preferably without bags, backpacks, signs, etc.
RSVP not necessary. Please arrive on time.
