On February 26, 2019, the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) in conjunction with NYU McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy & Research and the NYU Law Center on Race, Inequality & the Law, is hosting their first-ever youth summit at New York University Kimmel Center, Rosenthal Pavilion, 60 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012.

This gathering is an opportunity for young people ages 10-24 from across New York City to directly share their experiences with policing, identify problems in their communities, and recommend solutions to public safety and police oversight practitioners and academics. The insights shared by participants from this event will inform CCRB's 2019 report on youth, which will be released later this year.

Registration for this event is now closed. Watch live on February 26th and be sure to join the online conversation using the hashtag #CCRBYouthSummit.

If you have questions about the event, requests regarding accessibility, or need language interpretation assistance, please email accessibility@ccrb.nyc.gov. Interpretation services are free upon request.


The program begins promptly at 9:00 AM. We encourage everyone to arrive no later than 8:15 AM so that you have enough time to get through registration and have breakfast.
