Tahjane Curb started this petition to Mayor of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and

I just found out that there is going to be a men's shelter built in the Stapleton area which normally wouldn't be an issue but this shelter in particular can have a huge negative impact on our children. They have decided to build this shelter not near 1 nor 2 but 3 SCHOOLS. Stapleton Housing is a very family heavy area with children in nearly every apartment. There is no way they possibly thought this was a good location for a men's shelter and yet they seem to be proceeding with this idea. We need to stop them and that's why I've started this petition.

We can not allow them to endanger or children like this. There are many that go to school by themselves due to circumstances like parents going to work or siblings having to go to school before them. That means these children have nobody to protect them. With a new serge of men running around how could this not be dangerous? And not only during school is this a problem but during the summer that means you need constant care for your children. Typically it'd be okay to send them to a park by themselves but now how can you trust there won't be someone preying on the children? You can't. These men can have any background and with no idea on if there's a filtering system, it'd best to just not have it here.
