The Police Reform Organizing Project has moved to a new office!
We are excited to report that PROP has moved on— to venture out as an independent organization. We are in a new office located at: 307 West 36th Street, 12th floor.
*Please see our Staff page for new e-mail addresses and other updated contact information.
Our next city-wide meeting is on Wednesday, May 28th from 6 to 8pm. Open to all interested persons, these meetings generally attract a diverse group of New Yorkers — all ages,races, ethnicities, genders, sexual preferences, communities, and constituencies represented — and always focus on discussing and deciding upon the actions that PROP will take to advance its policy reform goals.
Outreach Petition Day – Sunday, June 1st, 1pm-5pm, PROP volunteers will travel to different locations in the city to carry out our ongoing petition drive. This effort will add to the thousands of signatures already gathered to show policymakers and the press that the support for sweeping NYPD reforms is diverse and wide spread.
CAN Art Show: “Outspoken Art: Youth Against Abusive Policing” – Thursday, June 12th, 5-8pm (2 West 64th St). CAN is a city-wide coalition of students and faculty that use campus and community organizing to promote police and criminal justice reform. This event will include the art work of students, high school through grad school level. Young artists will showcase photography, drawings, paintings, and video as well as give live performances (spoken word, short skits, etc.). Want to know more about this event? Check out the flyer.
*We are currently accepting artwork submissions for the CAN Art Show, if you are interested please complete the submission process here. No previews art experience necessary!
We will release PROP’s new report, “Changing the NYPD: A Progressive Blueprint for Sweeping Reforms” before the end of May that will detail the policy reforms that Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Bratton should enact to eliminate abusive policing practices that do harm everyday to the city’s vulnerable populations: street vendors, sex workers, Muslim-Americans, LGBT persons, individuals in psychiatric crisis, and homeless people.
If you would like to get involved in either event, or any of our work please send us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you!
