The Morris Justice Project (MJP) was 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, MJP spent two years documenting experiences of policing in a 40 block community near Yankee stadium and several years more acting on this research. Active in Communities United for Police Reform and deeply concerned about the NYPD’s use of stop and frisk, MJP closely watched the historic Floyd v. the City of New York trial and the contested passage of the Community Safety Act.
