All across New York City in neighborhoods affected by Broken Windows policing, we are there. From Harlem to Brownsville, Jackson Heights to the South Bronx, Staten Island to Sunset Park, East New York to the Brooklyn Bridge. Coalition activists have been filming police harassment and brutality in their neighborhoods for years. Guerrilla filmmakers have been vital in exposing the effects of Broken Windows policing on communities of color -- and used in court trials as evidence to exonerated innocent people caught up in police lies.
We organize street protests and confront politicians in City Hall. We run campaigns to raise public awareness of the types of petty violations that ensnare people into the criminal justice system. We bear witness to people's outrage and cries for justice. And we celebrate our diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
