COP WATCH - Learn how to observe and document police misconduct in your community
Observing and documenting police misconduct – often referred to as “Cop Watch” -- is a tool to help hold officers accountable to respecting the dignity and rights of all New Yorkers. To learn more about how to cop watch as an individual, visit copwatchnyc.org.
You can also reach out to CPR members that lead our Cop Watch work, including training neighborhood and community-based teams: Justice Committee, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement & CAAAV - Organizing Asian Communities (these three organizations run the Peoples Justice alliance, which is also a CPR member).
DONATE TO COMMUNITIES UNITED FOR POLICE REFORM!
We have reached an unprecedented moment in the movement for racial justice and policing accountability. Tens of thousands of people in New York City and across the country are calling for an end to racial and police violence, abuse and harassment of low-income communities of color, including: youth, people who are homeless, women, LGBTQ, immigrants, people with disabilities, and others.
Our campaign to end discriminatory and abusive policing practices in New York has been at the forefront of this work, and at the center of our campaign are those most affected by discriminatory policing.
Now, more than ever, we need your support to strengthen our work to change policing in NYC. We hope you will consider supporting CPR today by making a one-time donation or becoming a monthly donor!
Thank you for your support!
