For No Good Reason_IvieKoy
Description: Ivie Koy, a Brooklyn native, is an activist and speaks out about her own experiences of being transgender. She has experienced both stop & frisk and being arrest and has had to endure the dehumanization of it, “I’ve been ticketed, [where] officers consistently pass around [my] ID, [ask me] ‘Are you carrying a full package?’, are rude and unprofessional.” Additionally, she says, “I have been publically mocked in front of lots of men, “trannies in the house,” [and] made to feel guilty even if it’s something very minor. Does it warrant the police letting every person in your holding cell that you are a biological male?” She says that when it comes to the police “you can’t just blame the police [only], it’s [also] the higher ups. In many ways our protectors need governing, there needs to be a new chapter that polices the police.”
