Streetwise and Safe: LGBTQQ Youth of Color Standing Up to Police Abuse and Criminalization (SAS) is a collaborative multi-strategy initiative to develop leadership, knowledge, and skills among LGBTQQ youth of color who have experienced gender-and-sexuality-specific forms of race and class based policing, particularly in the context “quality of life” policing and the policing of sex work and trafficking in persons. SAS has been very active in the Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) campaign, and is the only LGBTQ youth of color organization part of CPR’s steering committee. Their critical participation highlights the ways in which “Stop and Frisk” practices not only affect black and brown men, but LGBTQI youth of color in particular. SAS, along other NY-based grantee partners, contributed to the passing of the Community Safety Act. More recently, they pushed the passing of a partial “No Condoms as Evidence” policy and are now part of the decision making table evaluating policy implementation. SAS and BreakOUT! are leading the Get Yr Rights National Network.
