Become Part of the Change - From the Organizers - OPEN INVITATION TO ALL PROGRESSIVE LONG ISLAND COMMUNITY MEMBERS
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
Join us and become a part of this transformative, historic movement! LI United to Transform Policing & Community Safety has identified working groups to begin researching and developing campaigns that drive toward genuine community safety.
