**Can't make it out on the 17th but still interested in supporting? Visit the campaign's GoFundMe page:
This democratically run campaign consists of a wide swath of New Yorkers coming together to replace our city's ineffective police oversight structures with something more equitable and transparent. Currently, complaints against police officers are filte...red through the CCRB (Civilian Complaint Review Board), which consists of individuals appointed to their positions by the mayor, the police commissioner and City Council members. Prosecutions against police officers are handled by the DA's office, which has a vested interest in maintaining a good relationship with NYPD.
The amount of conflicts of interest in the current system suggests that it is designed to create the mere appearance of accountability rather than actually seeking to promote a healthy relationship between police and citizens, and the outcomes we constantly see show us that it's a norm for cops to get away with abusive behavior. This year we continue to learn more about impropriety in the NYPD and CCRB, and it becomes increasingly clear that a change is needed.
ECRB Campaigners have drafted legislation that will replace the CCRB with a Review Board consisting of elected citizens, and will create a Special Prosecutor position to handle prosecutions against police, bypassing all the current conflicts of interest, and operating transparently. Last year, the campaign made a huge step forward by finding a City Council sponsor, Inez Barron, for its legislation, and this year the campaign seeks to spread the word and channel all the voices throughout the city critiquing the current status quo towards the realistic, tangible, systemic solutions this legislation proposes.
The Sound Mind Collective has put together a powerful lineup of artists-- Bajah & The Dry Eye Crew, the Resistance Revival Chorus, Nikhil P. Yerawadekar & Low Mentality, DJ Xpect, and more to be announced-- for a night of music and activation, where we can celebrate movement towards a safer, more just NYC.
