In response to the arrest of over 40 students en route to the wake of a recently deceased friend, Make the Road by Walking’s Student Coalition Against Racial Profiling will hold a Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday June 5, 2007. The Coalition is asking District Attorney Hynes to drop all charges against the youth, and a public apology from the precinct.
