The Morris Justice Project
The Morris Justice Project is a collaborative research team of neighborhood residents in the south Bronx and members of the Public Science Project, the CUNY Graduate Center, John Jay College, and Pace University Law Center. Sponsored by the Public Science Project, we have spent two years documenting experiences of policing in our 40 block community near Yankee stadium. Active in Communities United for Police Reform and deeply concerned about the NYPD’s use of stop and frisk, we are closely watching the historic Floyd v. the City of New York trial. Rachel Jane Liebert is representing us in the courtroom and will be sending regular notes to this blog from the trial.
The Public Science Project is a collective of academics, students, community members, lawyers, artists, and activists committed to using participatory and critical research methods in the struggle for a just world. We are based at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Find out more at http://www.publicscienceproject.org/ and follow us @public_science.
