STATEMENT FROM FORMER OBAMA-BIDEN HOUSING SECRETARY AND BUDGET DIRECTOR SHAUN DONOVAN ABOUT NY STATE ATTORNEY’S LAWSUIT AGAINST NYPD’S EXCESSIVE FORCE ON BLACK LIVES MATTERS PROTESTORS 

“The violent actions taken by NYPD last spring and summer have no place in our city, which is why I applaud New York State Attorney General Letitia James for taking a stand on the side of justice to end the abuse and hold the police accountable for their unconstitutional excessive use of force on protestors marching for Black Lives,” said NYC Mayoral Candidate Shaun Donovan. “New York City is the front door of the world and we must guard our right to protest, make our voices heard loud and strong and show the world that we are a city where everyone can peacefully exercise their rights. Enough is enough–we need massive police reform now.”
