The New York Daily News reports:
Mayor de Blasio can’t allow “Black Lives Matter” to be painted on the street and then reject the message, “Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!” a new lawsuit argues.
A Virginia-based group called “Women for America First” says the city wrongly rejected its request to paint the odd “empowering” message on the street outside Gracie Mansion or in Times Square, citing the “Black Lives Matter” painted in yellow by Trump Tower.
Women For America First appears to be a relatively small organization. It has 3,600 followers on Twitter and has tweeted less than 1,000 times. Its website features a photo of the White House, a request for donations, merchandise for sale and little other information.
.@NYCMayor had 15 days to respond to our request to paint a mural regarding the empowerment of women.
