Mobilization for Justice Supports Right to Know Act

Mobilization for Justice has endorsed the Right to Know Act, a legislative package before the New York City Council to protect the civil and human rights of New Yorkers in everyday encounters with the New York City Police Department (NYPD) by improving transparency and accountability. More than 200 organizations have endorsed two bills (Int. 182B and Int. 541A), which require officers to identify themselves and explain the reason for the official interaction in non-emergency police encounters and which require officers to explicitly convey a person’s right to refuse a search when their consent is the only legal justification, and obtain objective proof that a person gave informed and voluntary consent.
