CPR Holds Leadership Development Institute, January 2013

In January 2013, CPR launched the first Leadership Development Institute (LDI) to build the capacity of directly affected communities to hold the NYPD accountable. The LDI trained almost 30 individual members from nine organizations to conduct Know Your Rights workshops in their communities. Knowing our rights is the first step in protecting ourselves from discriminatory and abusive policing. Participating organizations included the Audre Lorde Project, Bronx Defenders, FIERCE, the Justice Committee, Make the Road NY, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, New York City Anti-Violence Project, Picture the Homeless, Streetwise and Safe, VOCAL NY, and Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice.
