In the past two years, Communities United for Policing Reform (CPR) has played a critical role in leading a campaign to pass landmark police accountability legislation in New York City and partnering with families of New Yorkers killed by police to secure executive action by Governor Cuomo to establish a special prosecutor for police killings throughout New York State.
In spite of these victories, there remains much more to accomplish to transform police systems, policies, practices, and culture to be more accountable and transparent to the communities they serve.  We invite you to join CPR and funders for a briefing to contextualize the recent victories and to learn how the philanthropic sector can partner with advocates to support this critical work.
  • Current context for police reform in NYC and nationally
  • Lessons learned from CPR's multi-strategy, multi-sector campaign
  • Opportunities and challenges for winning long-term change to end discriminatory and abusive policing - from organizing and funding perspectives


Designed for

All interested funders.
