In partnership with The Point CDC, serving the Hunts Point neighborhood in the Bronx, G.A.P. ran a six-week a media arts intensive for 20 youth leaders (July – August). Participants created a docu-narrative "Fit the Profile" on the impact of Stop and Frisk policing on young people of color in the Bronx and throughout NYC. The piece was screened as part of a community festival at The Point to family, friends and community residents and will continue to be used as part of the A.C.T.I.O.N. group's campaign to educate their peers about police harassment and how they can get involved in the campaign.
