LI United to Transform Policing & Community Safety, convened by the Long Island Black Alliance (LIBA), invites you to become a part of an organized, mass movement to usher in transformative change on Long Island.
Currently comprising over thirty Long Island organizations spanning thousands of members, LI United to Transform Policing & Community Safety is a Black-led, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-generational coalition of organizations, activists, and community members on Long Island who are re-imagining and redesigning community safety.
LI United to Transform Policing & Community Safety is dedicated to creating a community where all of its members, specifically members of Black, Brown, Latinx, and Indigenous communities, feel innately valued, dignified, safe, and supported on Long Island.
Through a unified, coherent approach, the coalition aims to:
  • DIVEST from the criminalization of Black, Brown, Latinx, and Indigenous communities on Long Island;
  • TRANSFORM the state of Long Island policing to more effective restorative justice alternatives that stop cycles of violence;
  • INVEST in our Long Island Black, Brown, Latinx and Indigenous communities to promote genuine community safety, community control, and collective well-being
GET INVOLVED!

Our mission statement:

Democratic Reforms

We want to create a system in which Lincoln’s dream of a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” becomes a reality.  We support policies that will lead to more transparency in government, weaken the influence of the donor class, encourage higher voter turnout, and provide greater citizen participation in the process.

Economic Justice

We want to create a more balanced and robust economic landscape that works for everyone.  We want equal opportunity for those in the working and middle class to raise the standard of living and foster upward mobility.   We believe poverty can and must be eradicated.

Environmental Justice

We want to create policies that address the reality of global warming, single greatest threat facing our planet, and save the environment for future generations.  We believe that clean drinking water is a basic human right and that government policy must prioritize water rights over corporate profits.

Social Justice

We want to create a society which respects the inherent dignity and worth of every person, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, or sexual orientation.   We will defend the rights of the disenfranchised and work to ensure equal protection under the law.

Let's change together...
