NY Comic Con 2017 in Photos #NYCC #NYCC17 @NY_Comic_Con

This year was my first time attending New York Comic Con (actually any comic con) and I have to say it was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had at the Javit’s Center! There was a lot to see and so many amazing costumes. One thing that I really liked was how nice and accepting everyone was – it really felt like a tight-knit community of folks supporting each other.

Below are some photos I took during my time walking around. You can read more about NY Comic Con here.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @
