For months, Mayor de Blasio has promoted that his administration will stand against Trump's racist attacks on immigrants and people of color. Yet everyday, these same communities are criminalized and targeted by the NYPD's abusive, discriminatory "broken windows" policing, a practice that is consistent with Trump's racist policing agenda by fueling incarceration and immigration enforcement. New Yorkers need concrete actions by our local officials to make our city a true sanctuary for all.
Know Your Rights
CPR members are hosting FREE Know Your Rights trainings across the city this Spring to empower New Yorkers with critical information about their rights. The trainings will provide attendees with an understanding of their rights during encounters with the NYPD, ICE and FBI, and tools to stay as safe as possible during these different types of law enforcement interactions.
Dear CPR community,
Communities United for Police Reform continues to build momentum for community-supported police reform in New York that will have a lasting and substantive impact for members of our neighborhoods. Our campaign members are also leading and supporting critical efforts to advance justice.
As the summer months heat up, so is the movement to #changetheNYPD!
Over the past few months, we’ve been organizing throughout New York to take a stand against discriminatory and abusive policing and have been calling on public officials to enact concrete changes that would bring justice, respect and safety to our neighborhoods. With your support, we believe that we can AND WILL bring meaningful, positive change to New York for our communities.
The first step in protecting your rights is knowing them! CPR has developed a brief booklet to help New Yorkers of all backgrounds understand their rights when interacting with the police. Print copies are available through CPR member groups, or you can download it here.
