NYC human rights advocates launch anti-discrimination campaign

Anti-discrimination advocates are on a mission Tuesday to spread awareness at the city's subways.



The New York City Commission on Human Rights was handing out fliers at the Parkchester subway station as part of a five-borough subway outreach program aimed at cutting out harassment of race, religion, national origin and citizenship of commuters.



Many in the Parkchester community say they are afraid of being discriminated against. 



The commission is advocating NYC human rights law, and says discrimination should not be tolerated.
