About Peoples’ Justice:
Peoples’ Justices for Community Control and Police Accountability (PJ) is a coalition of grassroots organizations working in Black, Latino, Asian and LGBT New York City communities. The coalition was formed in the wake of the 2006 New York City Police Department killing of Sean Bell and shooting of Trent Benefield and Joseph Guzman in order to respond to the incident and hi-light the systemic nature of police violence. PJ’s founding organizations are former members of the historic Coalition Against Police Brutality, which helped organize massive protests in response to the 1999 killing of Amadou Diallo and aided in the dismantling of the notoriously brutal Street Crimes Unit that was responsible for his death.
PJ is committed to building the power of New York City communities of color to respond to and prevent biased, unlawful and violent policing. Our current work includes creating public art aimed at community education and empowerment, conducting street outreach and Know Your Rights and Cop Watch trainings through out the city, and developing a city-wide network of Cop Watch teams that are equipped and empowered to document police activity as a deterrent of abuse.
PJ’s member organizations include:
Long March Collective
