Building Momentum from the Ground Up: A Convening on Local Police Reform - Tools for promoting justice in policing

The following documents represent policy research and tools to assist in sharing best practices from around the country in work being done to bring justice to policing and ensuring better citizen oversight and community-centered policing.

The Center for Popular Democracy, PolicyLink, Communities United for Police Reform, and, Local Progress are four organizations that held a convening last week in New York City where community activists, non-profit organizations and elected officials came together to share their experiences from around the country regarding police and justice reform.  The meetings build on and follow a Convening by Local Progress that was also held in New York City in early December, 2014.
