Safer New York Act

The Safer NY Act is a package of bills in the New York State Legislature that would help increase police transparency and help increase accountability to New Yorkers' most common encounters with police.

The #SaferNYAct includes: the Police Statistics and Transparency (STAT) Act, codifying and strengthening the Special Prosecutor executive order, reducing Unnecessary Arrests for low-level, ticketable offenses, repealing the NYS police secrecy law (CRL section 50-a), and legalizing marijuana with strong attention paid to ensuring that resources are reinvested in communities most harmed by prohibition.

In Dangerous Times, Your Support Is More Important Than Ever

With a White House openly hostile to civil and human rights, AND a NYC administration that claims to be progressive but fights tooth and nail to preserve police secrecy and protect officers who kill or abuse from accountability, now more than ever, the movement for police accountability needs your support. With your support this year, we can continue to fight for real NYPD accountability and build our work to reduce reliance on police - so our communities can be safe from police abuse and violence.
