New York City mourns Timothy Caughman killed last Monday by white supremacist James Harris Jackson
New York - A crowd of over 400 people gathered in Union Square on the evening of March 24, 2017; for an emergency action to say Enough is Enough. The crowd rallied and proceed to march to Herald Square in Midtown Manhattan where Timothy Caughman was killed and hold a moment of silence to honor Timothy and other victims of Hate Crimes and to say no to hate crimes and domestic terrorism.
On the evening of March 20, 2017; Timothy Caughman was stabbed to death with a sword by a white supremacist. James Harris Jackson, 28, of Baltimore, surrendered to the police shortly after midnight on Wednesday, a day after the victim, Timothy Caughman, 66, stumbled into a police station bleeding from stab wounds to his chest and back. On the evening of March 22, 2017; the white supremacist admitted to traveling to NYC from Baltimore to kill a Black man because "New York is the media capital of the world".
NYC has seen a rise in hate crimes since President 45 was elected. Many communities have been attacked in the era of Trump from Muslims, Trans folks, Black people and the Jewish community. New Yorkers say no and stand up united for our city.
Emergency action was organized by Resist Here, Women's March on Washington, Justice League NYC, Working Families Party, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez and Nelini Stamp.
