A different kind of COP is a project that goes beyond addressing the climate crisis with only the Conference of the Parties and instead involves the NYPD.
During the People’s Climate March we approached NYPD officers, showed them our sign, and asked if we could take a photo with them. Most were good sports about it. In fact, some of the most intimidating looking turned out to be the most pleasant. I approached the officers about the photos, Steve Lambert shot them.
Note: Officers mentioned to us they are not allowed to make political statements – we respect that. These photos are not meant to show any endorsement by individual officers, and only demonstrate good will towards the participants.
