Webinar Description:
The tragedies of Eric Garner, Mike Brown, John Crawford, Jessie Hernandez and others have ignited a national movement around police reform and racial justice. How can grassroots groups capitalize on the increased attention to organize and build coalitions that will impact policy and create sustainable change?

In this webinar, we will be joined by representatives of Communities United for Police Reform (CPR), a New York City based coalition, to learn about their local work and how it fits into a larger national and historical context. We'll discuss how to maintain momentum and make this issue more than just a campaign point, while exploring the critical role funders play.

Speakers:
Joo-Hyun Kang, Director, Communities United for Police Reform
Jose Lopez, Lead Organizer, Make the Road New York
Monifa Bandele, leadership team, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement
