TO CREATE A HIGHLY INFORMED AIMED SOCIETY
The Alliance for Police Accountability (APA) is a grassroots organization dedicated to criminal justice reconstruction, specializing in community/police relations. Our mission is to bring the community, institution stakeholders, and government officials to a working relationship and put an end to racial profiling, police brutality, and injustice within the criminal legal system through advocacy, education, and policy.
The Alliance for Police Accountability (APA) envisions a world where Black and Brown communities not only survive but also thrive, liberated from the unjust impact of the criminal legal system and empowered to advocate for equitable practices and policies from political leadership.
Our programming empowers individuals and communities through education, support, and engagement. From training opportunities that equip youth with valuable skills for activism and advocacy to community events and workshops, we provide knowledge and resources to enhance individual empowerment and foster connections, creating space for learning, dialogue, and collaboration.
Our campaigns focus on driving transformative change in the criminal legal system, empowering marginalized communities, addressing school injustice, and advocating for victims of police misconduct. Through strategic collaborations, community-centered initiatives, and proactive support, we work towards reimagining systems, promoting justice, and fostering healing and empowerment for those impacted.

A Future Made for All of Us

Seeking justice and accountability, activists, leaders, and organizations united to form APA, empowering communities through change, action, and educational equity.
APA dismantles barriers, heals communities, and amplifies every voice by inspiring change, catalyzing action, and championing equity in education and grassroots mobilization. Join us in shaping a future of fearlessness, institutional trust, and racial understanding.
APA focuses on critical national issues:
- Police Accountability
