Police Accountability and Criminal Justice Reform Campaigns

Throughout New York the rights of those involved in the criminal justice system are often compromised or ignored. Whether through stop and frisk practices that harass hundreds of thousands of law abiding New York City residents or draconian Rockefeller Drug Law sentencing that deposits whole populations upstate for years at a time, the excesses of the system impact us all. Low-income communities and communities of color remain particularly vulnerable to these inequities. The NYCLU works to promote accountability over our police forces and reform the criminal justice system to ensure fair treatment for all.

Our current campaigns include:

Bias-Based Policing
School to Prison Pipeline
Stop-and-Frisk Practices
Civilian Complaint Procedures
Rockefeller Drug Law Reform
