COVID-19 has created new conditions for police violence against Black and Brown New Yorkers in NYC. Thank you to all the New Yorkers that filmed and exposed all the NYPD violence taking place under the guise of COVID-19 and Social Distancing enforcement, including Mayor de Blasio's curfew. Keep watching/filming NYPD and share your video's with us so we can try to support the victims and expose the misconduct and corruption.

Join the movement to #DefundNYPD!
We are calling on Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Corey Johnson, and the New York City Council to defund and demilitarize the NYPD's bloated, almost $6 billion expense budget and redirect that money and all related savings to services, programs, and infrastructure for Black, Latinx and other communities of color.
