You know who is doing the work, day in and day out, to hold NYPD accountable for the systemic injustices of discriminatory and abusive policing? Communities United for Police Reform! Seriously. Fighting for justice in cases of policing is a long, uphill battle. They do so much to keep the movement moving, and it's been a privilege to support and work alongside them for the last few years.
And in case you're wondering who I'm yelling at in that photo, it's Pat Lynch, head of the police union, who has literally blamed Eric Garner for his own death (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/eric-garner-chokehold-death-ny-police-union-chief-praises-grand-n261586). Because of CPR's leadership, I and other organizers in SURJ NYC helped drown out awful, false statements like that.
We need CPR - Help me support them by donating what you can today!
