Speakers include Gwen Carr, Yul-San Liem with the Justice Committee, NYC Council Speaker Cory Johnson. New York City Public Advocate Tish James, New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer. Minister and President of Brooklyn Chapter of the National Action Network Kirsten John Foy, Staten Island Councilmember Debbie Rose, Queens Councilmember Donovan Richards and Brooklyn Councilmember Inez Barron.
