Students interview Brooklyn Borough President!

Students interview Brooklyn Borough President!

Red Hook Students recently interviewed Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President (and former police officer) to investigate issues of police accountability in their neighborhood!

As a part of CUP’s collaboration with students from the Red Hook Community Justice Center and Teaching Artist Marianna Olinger, students have been learning about what public safety could look like in their neighborhoods. They prepared for the interview by creating an extensive list of questions exploring Mr. Adams’ experiences with policing inside and outside of the force, and what he envisions for its future.

“It’s not just about taking the money away from the police, it’s about taking it away from them to reform our communities and also reform our justice system. That was the point he made that was the most important to me.” – Stiven, a student in the program

Students will conduct several more interviews with other local leaders to get more perspectives on police accountability. They’ll then produce a short documentary film with their findings! Check out more of their work here!
