Thank you for helping us get more than 100 signatures! You should know that families feel intimidated in the neighborhoods where the NYPD t-shirt wearing teachers teach, according to this DNAinfo news piece: http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20140909/sunnyside-staten-island/parents-teachers-intimidated-by-pro-nypd-t-shirt-protest-naacp-says
This is exactly the loss of trust we decry, and urge the NYPD-supporting teachers to rebuild.
Here's also an investigation that found Staten island has the smallest narcotics bureau in the city but the largest concentration of officers with lawsuits filed against them in the entire region: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/staten-island-highest-number-most-sued-nypd-officers-article-1.1882160
Let's make our schools places where we learn and foster mutual trust and community. Please help us urge all parties to take concrete steps under the Dignity Act to make this so, keep sharing this petition!
