At this year's 2018 celebration, we have some very special honorees.
Our honorees are helping NYC Together interrupt this school to "prison pipeline" by shifting mindsets from what is to what could be. By pushing past the punishment paradigm in practice, we are supporting the new DOE and NYPD policies that are often challenging to implement because of traditional culture and norms. Our program supports officers in being true leaders in the community by bringing social justice tenets into their efforts, which promotes public safety. In their meaningful collaborations with local youth, officers create powerful alternatives to conventional, adversarial responses to crime and disorder.

This Queens native always dreamed of becoming both a cop and a boxer. Today, he has attained both of those dreams—and much more. He took over the NYPD’s Fighting Finest Boxing Team in 2001 and has seen it grow from a loose-knit organization to one of international prominence.
This 19-year old Brooklyn native, didn’t have much money growing up, but his mother did what she could. They set out to find a gym and found Atlas Cops and Kids boxing gym, a place he would eventually call home. It not only became a safe-haven for Hitchins, but would eventually build him into an Olympian.

Dupont is back home in Brooklyn after serving 20 years in prison, Dominic was granted an executive clemency in 2017, by Governor Andrew Cuomo based on his leadership and positive impact within the prison system.

Tickets to our Annual Event
Working in collaboration with the NYPD, Together fosters meaningful relationships between officers and youth, spurring each to become change agents – altering the traditional narrative that these two groups must be adversarial. Since inception in 2015, 80% of students saw an increase in their grades, absences dropped an average of 38% – some students even received recognition for perfect attendance, and most notably, 98% of seniors have graduated high school. The program is built on education, empowerment, service and professional development but is bound by the principles of love, support and inclusiveness..

North Brooklyn is a place where innovation in policing and community building is vibrant and ever growing. Programs like NYC Together help us ensure young people are getting the resources and support they need. Moreover, this program provides meaningful opportunities for my officers to interact with youth in a non-crisis moment so if there is ever a community safety issue they are comfortable with us and willing to be our partners in making sure their community is safe. I am thrilled to see participants from this program graduate and go on to college.
