Floyd v. City of New York Trial Press Conference on Muslim Advocates Day March 2013

Movement Support is a crucial element of CCR's education and outreach work. Its primary function is to complement CCR’s legal work by linking the Center to various movements, projects and initiatives. CCR engages in movement support in order to: facilitate networking and the regular flow of communication and information between progressive organizations, agencies and constituencies; strategically undertake collaborative efforts around issues, campaigns and initiatives and facilitate the exchange of information between organizations and agencies about issues.

CCR's movement support is comprised both of assisting grassroots allies and participating in coalitions.
