January 2019

Written by TEAM ROC

In 2019, 1,600 individuals were being held at Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn in inhumane living conditions without heat. Many inmates reported illnesses and were seen banging on windows for help. Team Roc brought attention to the case by amplifying on social media, covered the cost of a vehicle for protestors, and pressured Governor Cuomo’s office to conduct an immediate investigation and take action.
