End No-Knock Raids

No-knock and quick-knock warrants and raids have severe and deadly consequences for communities already targeted by aggressive over-policing. These hyper-militarized police raids in the dead of night do not make New Yorkers safer. Instead, they put everyone involved at risk because they create a violent and chaotic environment where anything can happen. New York lawmakers have the opportunity to close one of the most dangerous chapters in the failed, racist war on drugs by passing legislation to bring these raids to an end.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
