    APD Forward Advocacy Training

    Do you want to the see meaningful reforms and a culture shift at the Albuquerque Police Department? Are you concerned about the ongoing consent decree with the Department of Justice? Come learn how you can make a difference in our community at the APD Forward Advocacy Training! 

    With changing administrations at the local, state, and federal level, we are at a critical juncture in our community and we need to make sure our leaders hear from us loud and clear.

    This advocacy training will provide you with the tools necessary to advocate for constitutional policing. You’ll learn about the existing consent decree with the Department of Justice, up to the minute updates on reform efforts, and will get a clear idea of how to plug in further–we’ll cover the upcoming Mayoral Forum, Community Policing Councils, City Council meetings, phone banks and letter writing campaigns, and upcoming legal observer trainings and Know Your Rights workshops.   

    Trained advocates will leave with a deeper understanding of the reform efforts and will have a knowledge base that allows for critical thinking on police reform. Space is limited so please RSVP today!

    APD Forward Mayoral Candidate Forum

    Later this year, Albuquerque will choose a new mayor. We know that this office is incredibly important to continue implementing the reforms needed to keep moving the Albuquerque Police Department forward.

    That’s why we're hosting a mayoral candidate forum! We want you to be able to hear from the candidates running for mayor and learn how they will continue to restore trust between impacted communities and APD.

    This will be a great opportunity to hear directly from the candidates who want to lead our city about how they intend to support APD’s reforms & oversee compliance with the DOJ’s recommendations.
