Criminal Justice Reform News
An appeals court’s hold on implementing reforms to the New York City Police Department’s controversial stop and frisk practices sends a dangerous message that the Department can continue its practice of targeting Black and Latino youth for stops, according to LatinoJustice PRLDEF.
We are building out our collective networks on Latinxs organizers involved in the fight for Criminal Justice Reform. Fill out this form with suggestions about people who we should engage with around the country.
“I’m going home to my abuela’s this weekend; I hope I don’t get stopped….”
In 2011, the NYCLU provided a detailed report of the NYPD's stop-and-frisk program detailing the methods, statistics and impact of Stop & Frisk in the Black and Latino community. The numbers were alarming and showed that Black and Latino young men were the primary target of this broken policy. Tell the NYPD that we will not stand for this. Help us stop the frisk by telling us your story.
