Episode 21: Brooklyn to Buffalo - Resisting Discriminatory Policing in New York

December 19, 2019

On Episode 21 of "The Activist Files," Center for Constitutional Rights Senior Staff Attorney Darius Charney speaks with Anthonine Pierre of the Brooklyn Movement Center and Marielle Shavonne Smith of Black Love Resists in the Rust, two leaders of Black-led grassroots organizations doing critical racial justice work on opposite ends of New York State. They discuss the strong similarities in police abuses happening in New York City and in Buffalo, their work to divest from harmful institutions and instead invest funds into their communities, the need for further transparency about and accountability for police misconduct, and how action from New York’s legislators and Attorney General could address these issues.
