Our Pledge

The Public Safety Pledge

We are asking 2021 Mayoral Candidates to sign and commit to the following policy measures:

  • 1 Create a Participatory Budget process for NYPD discretionary budget in communities that are over-policed
  • 2 Develop Community-led responses to shootings, adhered to by the NYPD
  • 3 Purge the gang database
  • 4 Develop a promotion matrix for rank above captain in partnership with community organizers and advocates
  • 5 Remove the 911 system from NYPD control as a means to reduce unnecessary police contact and assess and solve community needs
