When thinking about racism on a local level, there are many systematic issues that affect the New York City communities of color:

• Housing/Gentrification/Terraforming/Real Estate Gerrymandering
• Broken Windows Policing
• Rikers Island/Mass Incarceration
• Public Education/Charter Schools
• Immigration

The March for Racial Justice is a multi-community movement led by a coalition united in our demands for racial equity and justice. We march because as long as U.S. laws, policies, and practices remain steeped in racism and white supremacy, basic human rights and civil rights for all—our universal and constitutional rights—will never be fully realized. 

It is our duty to dismantle oppression, and to challenge, reverse and put an end to racist laws, policies, and practices that dehumanize people of color while sustaining white supremacy. 

In New York City we march as a Call to Action. We march to resist the systemic racism that creates a gross imbalance of power in our city: out of control police brutality and “Broken Windows” policing; mass incarceration, the prison industrial complex, and the deplorable conditions at Rikers Island; rampant gentrification and terraforming of our neighborhoods; segregation of our schools, predatory corporate charter schools, and the school to prison pipeline; and anti-immigration policies that strike fear into the hearts of so much of the population – immigrants, Dreamers, refugees, and as is often the case, victims of human trafficking.

No one is free until all of us are free.
