Campaign Updates from CPR
October 16, 2015
The highly publicized NYPD brutality against Black athletes has brought fresh spotlight to hyper-aggressive policing and use of excessive force by our city's police department. But New Yorkers in communities across the city frequently experience this police abuse without the same response from City Hall and 1 Police Plaza. It's a reason we continue our work to make NYC safer by holding police accountable to all New Yorkers and advancing systemic reforms that can help end abusive and discriminatory policing. We are gaining momentum in our fight and remain undeterred by NYPD media announcements that seek to quell demands for real, lasting reforms rather than deliver substantive changes for our communities.
Week of Action ~ Pass The Right To Know Act
Last week, CPR leaders hit the streets in every borough to engage New Yorkers about the Right To Know Act: legislation intended to protect New Yorkers' fundamental rights against abusive policing that violates their rights.
