A copy of the flyer from the protest was obtained by DailyMail.com, and indicates that the protests were initiated by an ‘autonomous group of NYC abolitionists who believe that policing does not protect and serve communities.’    

‘The NYPD has a total financial allocation of $11 billion per year. This money goes towards racist policing that destroys Black and brown communities while people who are struggling do not get the resources they need. CARE, not COPS, is the answer,’ the flyer read.  

The gala, which usually takes place on the first Monday in May, was delayed due to Covid-19 fears until tonight. The 2020 event was cancelled entirely due to the pandemic.
