New York, NY—On Tuesday, December 28th, the NYC Racial Justice Commission will march from the Triumph of the Human Spirit Fountain in Foley Square to the Office of the City Clerk and deliver ballot measures for racial justice and equity, which New Yorkers will vote on in the November 2022 general election. The ballot measures are a part of the Commission’s final report further detailing Charter Revisions to take effect if New Yorkers vote to adopt the proposals, as well as a recommended “roadmap for racial justice” for local, state, and federal governments. The symbolic walk to deliver the final report will mark the culmination of the Commission’s public engagement initiative to shape broad, bold proposals, and kick off a public education campaign ahead of the election next year.
New Yorkers can register to join the outdoor gathering and participate in the historic march to deliver ballot proposals to dismantle structural racism in the NYC Charter and advance racial equity.
