Rally to Launch How Many Stops Act campaign

Join Communities United for Police Reform, our partners and supporters from across the city on Feb. 8, 12pm at City Hall to launch our new How Many Stops Act campaign! Let's raise our voices to call on City Council to pass this critical legislation that will bring much needed transparency to the vast majority of NYPD interactions with the public and protect the Right To Know Act police accountability laws that hundreds of New Yorkers fought for and won six years ago. Help put an end to abusive and discriminatory policing by showing your support for the How Many Stops Act right on the City Council’s doorstep. See you there!

Rally For Reform & Anti-Violence

Please join a coalition of passionate youth leaders as they push back against failed carceral and policing policies. 



Vigil, March, and Rally: Fund Communities Not Cops

On Thursday, Feb. 3rd, join CPR member VOCAL-NY for a march and vigil in response to Mayor Eric Adams' carceral and failed policies. While the events of the first month of the year are indeed tragic, we cannot allow the violence against these two officers to justify the continued investment in policies and policing that will destroy our communities. 

Where: Harriet Tubman Memorial. (We will hold the vigil at the Harriet Tubman Memorial and then march to Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. State Building for the speakout).

Travel: 2 ,3, A, B, C, D to 125th Street

VIRTUAL: Ending Qualified Immunity Town Hall

On Friday, Jan. 14th, join CPR member VOCAL-NY as they continue the campaign to shine a light on the violence and abuse that is happening on our streets and in our states' jails and prisons and call on lawmakers to end qualified immunity, the near-total legal shield from civil liability (aka lawsuits) for government officials, especially the police, prosecutors, and corrections officers. It leaves victims and their families without justice. Let's end it!

Virtual: #NoNewNYPDGuns Social Media Storm

Families of NYers killed by the NYPD are outraged by the NYPD’s plan to equip its officers with guns that have sensitive triggers that are easier to fire. This will not increase safety for New Yorkers or help the NYPD uphold the law. All it will do is make it easier for officers to play the role of judge, jury and executioner. This decision was also made without input from families of NYers killed by the NYPD, other police reform advocates, or the NYC public. In the interest of public safety, the families are calling on Mayor de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Shea to immediately halt the use of these new firearms, which the NYPD has decided to first put in the hands of its newest recruits.

Join the Families on Tuesday, November 16 to demand Mayor de Blasio put a stop to the NYPD's plan to use the new easier-to-shoot guns.
