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.

Why #NYCBudgetJustice?


In his  FY2021 budget proposal, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has called for devastating cuts to core social services, programs, and infrastructure that are crucial to communities of color - and that have had a history of under-investment. This includes environmental programs, education, youth programs (e.g. the Summer Youth Employment Program), and other agencies. The NYPD budget, however, is largely untouched and given special protections in the proposed executive budget. 

110+ Organizations Call For NYPD Budget Cuts To Redirect Resources


More than 110 organizations, brought together by Communities United for Police Reform (CPR), called on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson to cut the NYPD budget, in order to protect and redirect resources to core social service/safety net programs run by other city agencies that will be essential for communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Protecting the Safety & Rights of All NYers During COVID-19 Crisis


CPR, along with 50+ NYC, state and national organizations, have released 6 key demands to NYC Mayor de Blasio calling for a moratorium broken windows policing, zero tolerance for police abusive, and to shift resources to vital human services during the #COVID19 crisis.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio must take immediate action to protect public health and human rights of every New Yorker, especially those most vulnerable to abusive policing. The COVID-19 crisis means accountability for NYPD abuse of authority & abusive policing is more important than ever.
