GGE mobilized partners to collectively respond to Mayor de Blasio’s Preliminary Budget announcement with a clear community demand for Police-Free Schools Now! Every typical Friday, the Mayor delivers his daily briefing around 10 AM, then appears on WNYC‘s The Brian Lehrer Show sometime between 11 and 11:30 AM for the “Ask the Mayor” segment. You can listen live at wnyc.org/radio or 93.9 FM.
On Friday, January 15, GGE and partners participated in a Twitter Storm at the Mayor during Brian Lehrer with #AskTheMayor to demonstrate some sustained pressure to reduce the power, scope, presence, and budget of school policing.
