The NCCPT is comprised of grassroots activists, organizations, attorneys and Hip Hop artists. NCCPT is seeking to abolish police occupation and terrorism in the African-American Community and Communities of Color. The NCCPT provides an alternative to some of the current reactionary, reformist, self-appointed and government endorsed leaders that many ordinary people, who experience police terrorism, have become frustrated with.

NCCPT will focus on fundamentally changing the way policing is performed by having community regulated and controlled decentralized policing.
