We Are As You
WE ARE THE FORGOTTEN ONES
We have the right to dance.
Join Us Every Night RAIN OR SHINE from 8-9PM
Outside the Metropolitan Detention Center
80 29th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231
On July 3rd, 2020, a nightly dance demonstration was born outside Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn to remind those inside they are not forgotten. We dance to bring joy, love, levity and entertainment at a time when it is needed more than ever. Neither friends nor family have been allowed inside prisons across the country since March.
The enthusiasm has been growing from the men inside, as they bang on their windows and flash their lights in appreciation. But recently, we have learned from sources that some men are being punished and moved to cells without windows.
This is wrongful and must be exposed.
The dance must go on.
Each night, we gather as a reminder to those inside,
their families, and ourselves, that
“We Are As You.”
Because we all, at some point in our lives, have felt
what it is like to be forgotten.
Join us as we connect through the most universal form of human expression: dance. #WeAreTheForgottenOnes
