Police Accountability in Charlotte
The SAFE Coalition NC began in 2012 as a grassroots effort to promote police accountability. After 2 years of hard work and small victories, our organization officially became a project of Action NC in 2017. SAFE stands for Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity, and that is exactly what we fight for every day.
SAFE Coalition NC’s advocates are victims of police and neighborhood violence, concerned residents and allied organizations. We organize not only to promote police accountability, but also for criminal justice reform, the re-enfranchisement of people previously convicted and for an end to community violence. Our goal is to build safe, sustainable communities that are not reliant on government intervention or law enforcement to become united and strong. We believe that we will win change through leadership development, community dialogue, direct action and grassroots organizing. Our work falls into two major areas: Police Accountability and Community Organizing.
