In 2017, we created the nation’s first independent, online police reporting service. We wanted to hold cops accountable and make every place safe for all Black people.
Nearly 2,700 reports later, we realized that reform doesn’t make us safer: it sustains police terror. But, none of this work was in vain.
By organizing alongside communities most impacted by policing, we learned that a world without police is not only within reach—across this country, it’s already being built.
Now, our organization is evolving—to harness the power of community and technology and help people reimagine safety altogether.
We’re building The PATCH Network—an unprecedented, nationwide network of abolitionist organizations, social services, restorative justice and health practitioners, and mobile crisis teams. And to supercharge our shared vision of a life-affirming world without police, we’re developing a bold alternative to 911—a dispatching system that allows these organizations to respond to conflict and crisis not with violence, but care.
