Demand Justice for Eric Garner

After five long years of obstruction and refusal to take action by Mayor de Blasio and the Department to hold the NYPD involved in Eric Garner’s killing accountable, and tireless organizing by the Garner family and community organizations and advocates, Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who put Garner in a banned chokehold, was fired in August 2019. The fight for justice for Eric Garner is not yet over. Of the multiple NYPD on scene that day, only one other besides Pantaleo, Sergeant Kizzy Adonis, has faced any disciplinary action.

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.

Right to Know Act Is Law

As of October 19, 2018 the Right To Know Act is now law! New Yorkers have new protections when it comes to searches by the NYPD as well as the right to know the identity of police officers who are stopping them in SOME instances. It's important to Know Your Rights and read up on what these important new laws mean for you and your communities.
