NYC Public Advocate Letitia James Speaks On Police Reform & Community Involvement

On February 2nd, New York City public advocate Letitia James stopped by the Breakfast Club and had an enlightening discussion about police tactics, reform and getting involved in your respective communities. Though her examples are centered instances based in New York, they can be applied in all cities. James goes to bat for those in disenfranchised communities within the five boroughs, helping members of the community overcome legal hardships. Using the recent case of Eric Garner as an example, she was instrumental in having body cameras instituted for the NYPD, also, she is fighting for the transcript in the Garner grand jury decision to made public so all of the facts may be presented. When it comes down to achieving and sustaining justice, James implores minorities, especially males, to not only vote, but be involved in their communities, and get to know their elected officials on a personal level. This, she says, is the initial step toward achieving rights.
