The NAACP New York State Conference to protest the acquittals in the Sean Bell case

Please join us in our Quest for Justice For Sean Bell - Prayer Vigil/Civil Disobedience

Hazel N. Dukes, President NAACP New York State Conference, Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network, Reverend W Franklyn Richardson, Chairman of. Chairman National Action Network, Rev. Herbert D. Daughtry, Pastor, House of the Lord Church, Brooklyn, NY, Cynthia Dorsey, Mothers Against Guns and other organizations will lead a "pray-in" on Wednesday, May 7th, at 3:00 p.M. to protest the acquittals of the three detectives in the Sean Bell case and to call upon the United States Department of Justice to intervene in the case. "If you are not going to lock up the guilty in this town, then I guess you'll have to lock up the innocent," says Rev. Sharpton. This action is a lead-up to an eventual citywide shut down this spring.
