Communities united for Police Reform joined City Council members, civil rights leaders and faith leaders at a press conference on Thursday March 15th, to call for transparency from NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly at the city council's annual budget hearing.
Communities United for Police Reform will be launching our campaign with events around New York City, taking our message to City Hall, and to the communities most intensely targeted by these profoundly unfair policing practices. All listed events are free, some have pre-registration or other specific requirements. For general information about the week: justice [at] changethenypd.org
