NYSNA members joined thousands of other union members, community members, elected officials and clergy in a massive silent march to end New York City's “stop and frisk” policy on Fathers Day in Manhattan.
Prompted by concerns raised by civil rights, labor and community organizations, the NYSNA Board of Directors voted to encourage NYSNA members to participate in the event. Special thanks to HHC Leader/NYSNA Board Member Anne Bové for sharing her photos.
