For years, the NYC Public School Athletic League (PSAL) has allocated more sports teams with greater variety to schools with a higher population of white students. In 2018, NYLPI sued the Department of Education (DOE) and the PSAL challenging this discriminatory system which provides far less access to after school sports to Black and Latinx students. After a full year pause of PSAL sports due to COVID-19, the DOE has announced it is bringing back PSAL sports for a spring/summer season, starting this month. The PSAL program for the spring/summer season appears to be one that will exacerbate the inequities in access to sports for Black and Latinx students across the City.

Our city faces interrelated crises from COVID-19, mass unemployment, and continued systemic racism. Take action with NYLPI and our allies and call on our Council Members and Mayor to deliver budget justice – reallocating part of the ballooning NYPD budget to invest in core services for communities instead. Email the Mayor, your Council Member, and members of the City Council Budget Negotiating Team to shift at least $1 billion from the enormous NYPD budget to the social services, environmental, education, and health programs that our City needs now more than ever.
