Join CPR's NYC Budget Justice Rally - April 5!

Join CPR and the #NYCBudgetJustice coaltion on Wednesday, April 5th to demand NYC Council pass a FY24 budget that prioritizes the needs of our communities!

This means cutting the NYPD's bloaded $11B budget, moving money away from policing and expanding resources for housing, mental health, education, youth services,  public infrastructure and other community-centered programs.  Come out to a demand a vision for safety rooted in community needs and investments -- not more police! 

Pass the How Many Stops Act

Call on NYC Council to pass the #HowManyStopsAct!

These two commonsense bills will require full reporting of the NYPD’s most common daily interactions with New Yorkers, a crucial step to strengthening NYPD accountability, and will help protect the Right To Know Act that CPR and our broader Right to Know Act Coalition fought for and won six years ago. Passing the How Many Stops Act is an essential step toward NYPD accountability and ensuring real community safety.


Justice For Kawaski Trawick

On April 14, 2019, NYPD officers Brendan Thompson and Herbert Davis arrived at 32-year old Kawaski Trawick's apartment. Officer Davis broke the chain off his door to illegally gain entry. Kawaski asked the officers, “Why are you in my home?” and told them, “I’m cooking.” The officers repeatedly escalated the incident. Thompson and Davis shouted orders at him and refused to answer Kawaski’s questions. Thompson tased him without cause and then shot and killed Kawaski within 112 seconds of their arrival.

Justice For Delrawn Small

On July 4, 2016, 37-year-old Delrawn Small was shot and killed by NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs in front of his 4-month-old baby, teen stepdaughter, and girlfriend. More than four years after Delrawn’s killing, Isaacs is still employed by the NYPD.

In October 2020, the CCRB substantiated charges against Wayne Isaacs, after a long delay the NYPD served those CCRB charges in January 2021, but his discipline trial has yet to be scheduled.

Justice For Antonio Williams

On September 29, 2019, Antonio Williams was standing on the street, waiting for a taxi when plainclothes officers jumped out of an unmarked car. NYPD officers chased, tackled, and beat Antonio. Shortly after, they opened fire, killing Williams and NYPD officer Brian Mulkeen in a reckless hail of 15 bullets – some shot from over 60 feet away. For almost two years, NYPD provided no explanation for why officers chased Williams in the middle of the night and have never articulated the reasonable suspicion required to stop Antonio.
