#TheTakeBack: The march for stolen lives & looted dreams

Justice League NYC, its parent organization, The Gathering for JusticeUntil Freedom, The Arc of Justice, and other organizations will be hosting a march and rally tomorrow, Saturday, June 6.

The meet up is at 10:00 am EST at the Frederick Douglass statue on 110th Street and Central Park West. The march will step off at 11:00 am EST. The rally will begin at 2:00 pm EST in Washington Square Park.

This benefit effort calls on Mayor Bill de Blasio to cut the NYPD’s $6 million dollar budget and invest in youth and community programs.

Those who march will also be demanding Governor Cuomo to repeal 50-A, the law that allows the NYPD to conceal misconduct records from the public.

For a detailed list of all the demands, check out #TheTakeBackDemands.

The Gathering for Justice’s mission is to end child incarceration and abolish the racial disparities that the justice system upholds.

Along with its child organization, Justice League NYC, the nonprofit incorporates Kingian nonviolence as a “social application for systemic change and civic engagement.”

Known as an intersectional social justice organization, Until Freedom roots itself in the leadership of many groups of color. The organization addresses systemic and racial injustices and suggests those closest to pain are closest to change.

Until Freedom dubs itself a clearinghouse for many groups of people like advocates, students, and community organizers.

The Arc of Justice is also a social justice organization that is known for using peaceful methods to combat inequality. They also identify, advocate, and speak for those without a voice.

Some of the issues The Arc of Justice fights for are gender equity, global migration as a human right, and tech justice.
