For revolutionary feminism,
racial justice, and working-class power.
In 2020 the people of NYC made their rage at police injustice heard. We marched. We chanted. We stood together. But it’s three years later and things have not changed. The NYPD budget is higher than ever, police are still attacking the public, and lives are still being lost.
But change is still possible.
The police won’t police themselves, so activists and community members are behind a new plan to give the public oversight of the NYPD. The Community Police Oversight With Elected Review Act, or Community POWER Act, creates a board of elected New Yorkers that can discipline or fire officers who abuse us. It also creates an Independent Prosecutor who takes criminal cops to court.
New York City needs this bill, but insider politicians are blocking change. That’s where we all come in. Since the City Council leadership is denying the public a hearing on the bill- we’re going to have one of our own. A People’s Hearing.
On October 19th, join communities across NY and hold a portrait of someone who lost their life to police violence.
Show the City Council It’s time to hold police accountable. Show the City Council It’s time to pass the Community POWER Act!
