Artists, do you have a spare MetroCard?
I'm writing to let you know about a campaign in which we are participating in solidarity.
Leading up to an action on March 20th, 2017, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration is collecting unexpired MetroCards for the #SwipeItForward campaign in an effort to raise awareness of the disproportionate policing of communities of color for fare evasion.
When you rehearse at Spaceworks @ Williamsburgh Library or Spaceworks Long Island City between now and March 20th, drop off any unexpired MetroCards (with or without $ value) in the collection containers pictured below. We'll get all the cards back to BAJI.
You can learn more about the disproportionate policing of communities of color and support the #SwipeItForward campaign by clicking here.
Have a great week.
