Organizing to Reform the NYPD Forum - Police Reform Organizing Project (PROP)

Video From the Conference - December 1, 2011

Robert Gangi, long time Director of the Correctional Association, has formed a new organization called PROP, Police Reform Organizing Project, which is seeking radical reform of police practice-- specifically practice such as Stop/Frisk and its racialized practice in poor communities of color.

King Downing is a lawyer, public speaker, community organizer, activist, and a member of the Campaign to end the New Jim Crow (CENJC), which co-sponsored the conference. "Racial Profiling is a deliberate policy". "Stop and frisk is a diversion" to distract us from corporate crime.

Shepp called for community control. It was a novel idea to some of the panelist.
