We need Transparency on M.A.R.C.H #TalksNotRaids

Tell your story. NYC’s [M.A.R.C.H. Raids]( shutter vital cultural spaces. The Multi-Agency Response to Community Hotspots (M.A.R.C.H.) are terrifying raids that shutter vital community spaces. M.A.R.C.H. is a group of City agencies, headed by the NYPD, and includes the SLA, DOB, DEP, FDNY, and DOHMH, that primarily organizes and target cultural spaces in order to close them. M.A.R.C.H. efforts result in a terrifying raid in the middle on the night, with half a dozen city agencies storming a venue, closing the space, and issuing numerous fines so as to cripple the business and force a shutdown.
