NAACP Commends Mayor de Blasio for Dropping Lawsuit against Community Safety Act

The NAACP released the following statement in response to New York City Mayor de Balsio’s decision to drop the lawsuit against the Community Safety Act filed under the Bloomberg administration.

From Hazel N. Dukes, President of the NAACP New York State Conference:
“This is a victory for the people of New York City and confirmation of Mayor de Blasio’s commitment to ending racial profiling by the NYPD,” stated New York NAACP President Hazel N. Dukes. “The lawsuit was an unnecessary obstacle seeking to preserve a broken system and we commend the Mayor for removing it from the city’s path to reform.”

From Dr. Niaz Kasravi, NAACP National Criminal Justice Director:
“The NAACP commends Mayor de Blasio for dropping the lawsuit against the racial bill of the Community Safety Act and fulfilling his campaign promise to help end racial profiling and stop and frisk abuses in New York,” stated NAACP Criminal Justice Director Dr. Niaz Kasravi.  “New York has the opportunity to be a national leader in working to end racial profiling and we look forward to working with the Mayor and his team to implement real changes that will ultimately lead to protecting the basic rights of all New Yorkers and at the same time greater public safety."
On Father’s Day 2012, the NAACP joined with 1199 SEIU and National Action Network to lead a “Silent March to End Stop-and-Frisk” down Fifth Avenue in New York City. The march drew tens of thousands of people from diverse races, ethnicities and religions.
