Public Workshop: “NYPD Gang Database”

open to the public

NYPD Gang Database workshop
with SAVE Cure Violence
and The Legal Aid Society
Thursday, July 26th
3:30PM to 5PM
91 East 116th Street, NYC

Since 2012, the NYPD is known to have maintained a database of individuals they allege – based on secret surveillance, including social media activity – to be gang or “crew” members.

Gang databases such as this are overinclusive, inaccurate and have a disparate impact. Indeed, the vast majority of those entered into the NYPD gang database are New Yorkers of color. More importantly, entry into the gang database does not require any evidence of criminality or suspicion of wrongdoing.
