FIERCE applauds New York City Council and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-VIverito for taking an important step in ending the criminalization of low level Quality of Life offenses in New York City.
We are tired of our bodies constantly being targeted by the police
It's Time to rise up, empower ourselves and each other, and shut it down
We will no longer be the targets of the police. Young people all over the country are fighting against police brutality/violence. FIERCE is fighting against police brutality here in NYC.
If you identify as a LGBTQ Youth of color between the ages of 13-24, we want you to join us in the struggle for Change.
Regarding Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby's announcement this morning: Finding Baltimore resident Freddie Gray's death a homicide, and the subsequent charging of six Baltimore police officers with a range of criminal offenses, and calling for their arrests was a small step toward the justice that we at FIERCE have been working for for fifteen years.
Following a search process led by Universal Partnership, the Board of Directors of FIERCE is pleased to announce that Angela Moreno has accepted the position of interim executive director for the organization.
