The number of registered sex offenders in the United States is approaching 1million. The majority for life, including children as young as 8. #endtheregistry #POTUS
@HaydenHewitt Have you no pity for the many 14-year-olds placed on the sex offender registry because they got caught having consensual sex with someone close to their own age? It happens a lot. #EndTheRegistry #AbolishTheRegistry #YouthRights @EQFoundation
2/ If you find it difficult to understand why this matters, consider this. A full 32% of the NY Corrections Committee agenda today involves bills that demand further restrictions, sanctions & punitive actions towards individuals who are required to register. #endtheregistry
1/ If you are in NY, are affected by public registration, have a loved one who is, or fundamentally oppose registries as a matter of human rights & because they distract from strategies that actually reduce sexual harm - We must join those on the ground & expand our coalitions.
I'm 100% convinced the only way through this mess is building allies through coalitions-demonstrating humanity. Nothing else will create lasting change. We know our culture created the Super Predator myth -- we can't dismantle that myth with aggressive behaviors. #EndTheRegistry

On 6/4/20, the NYPD arrested at least 11 @NLG Legal Observers.
In some cases, NYPD officers read or destroyed LO notes.
Yesterday, the @NLGNYCnews sent the NYPD a letter including demands for immediate action.
Please amplify, and help us make sure this never happens again. https://twitter.com/jangelooff/status/1270105416689750016
During last week's mass arrest of peaceful protesters in the Bronx, the NYPD detained at least 11 legal observers — an act "targeted harassment" that was unprecedented and deliberate, according to longtime attorneys. Here's new video of one such arrest https://gothamist.com/news/round-green-hats-nypd-accused-deliberately-targeting-legal-observers-brutal-bronx-mass-arrest
Smart idea - Take press credentialing away from NYPD! Journalists must be able to report on NYPD w/o fear of losing press credentials. #FirstAmendment #democracy

THURSDAY: a TV cameraman is recording arrests of protesters in Manhattan. A police spokesman holding a baton ordered the cameraman across the street (out of view of the arrests, behind hundreds of cops) and threatened to revoke his police-issued press card: “You won’t work!”
