As people who have personally felt the agony of loss, we are horrified that to date in 2019 there have been at least 61 fatalities on the streets of New York City, a 42 percent increase compared to this time last year. While this trend is troubling, it is not exactly surprising. A host of street safety projects across the city have been delayed due to petty fights and parochial politics. We are calling all New Yorkers to join us for an emergency vigil on May 7th at noon on the steps of City Hall to demand action.
