When Stephanie Hunter got on the Stanton Island ferry on October 9, she was wearing a “We will not be silent” T-shirt.
“You better not wear that shirt on this ferry again,” she was told. “You remember what happened on the JetBlue flight?”
On October 23, she returned with a group of 100 friends, many of them wearing “We will not be silent” T-shirts.
The official statement from the Coast Guard? “It’s our policy in the Coast Guard that anyone is allowed to wear whatever they want.”
