Praise: Silent March Against NYC Stop And Frisk

GLAAD produced the video.  Their commentary on YouTube:
On June 5, 2012, at the historic Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, where a backlash against police harassment in June 1969 launched the modern LGBT rights movement, local, state and national LGBT organizations, convened by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, joined civil rights, labor, and elected leaders to announce support for the campaign against the NYPD's stop and frisk policy, and issue a call to action to for the LGBT community to participate in the June 17th Father's Day Silent March Against Racial Profiling.
Organizers of the Stonewall event unveiled an unprecedented and growing coalition of over 50 LGBT national, state, and local organizations standing together in support of the March.
The Silent March has been organized by the NAACP, National Action Network, and 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East.

That the NAACP supports equality for the LGBTQ Community is not and should not be a one-way street.  We do not improve our lot by stepping upon others, but by elevating all to equality.  This is a powerful message from Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum of Beit Simchat.  It is an important message for all who treasure equality.
