Saggy Pants is not a crime!
Stop criminalizing our youth!
February 21, 2013
The Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts has put forward an ad inviting the police to use existing laws against lewd behavior to arrest, fine and imprison youth with up to 3 years in prison simply for the way they dress. In fact, the problem in our communities is not how we dress, but poverty, unemployment, underfunded schools, and police brutality. The push to arrest people with saggy pants is an invitation to the police to increase racial profiling. Instead we need to use our resources to improve our community programs, schools, and resources. Please come to discuss:

637 Washington St, Dorchester
Conference Room A in the basement
Basement, Conference Room A
4 blocks from the Shawmut T-Stop on the Red Line;
