NAN, MPAC and NY Faith Leaders to Rally Against Practices by Mayor's Office of Special Enforcement

NEW YORK, NY — On Friday, July 14th at 11 a.m., leaders from the National Action Network (NAN) will join the faith community and elected officials from across New York City to participate in a press conference, speaking out against the Mayor's Office of Special Enforcement's collusion with the hotel-funded lobby group ShareBetter to target ordinary everyday New Yorkers for criminalization. 

The conference will be held at the Department of Investigation’s Complaint Bureau on 80 Maiden Lane.

The leaders will call on the Department of Investigation (DOI), the District Attorney, and the New York Attorney General to launch a full, formal investigation into ShareBetter’s aggressive campaign to spy on ordinary New Yorkers who are using home sharing platforms, like Airbnb, to earn extra income. 

According to recent media reports, the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement is using information gathered through ShareBetter’s outrageous tactics as the basis for targeted enforcement actions against individuals.

Speakers will include Minister Kirsten John Foy, Northeast Regional Director of National Action Network, as well as local community leaders and activists.
