Biography

Chris Bilal is 24-year-old writer from the Bed Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn who just moved to a similarly policed section of the South Bronx. He is an advocate for social and economic justice who currently works as campaign staff for Streetwise and Safe (SAS), a NYC-based grassroots organization that empowers LGBTQ youth of color who have experienced homelessness, policing, and criminalization, and whose voices are not often heard in conversations about policing through know-your-rights education, organizing, advocacy, and solidarity with similary criminalized communities. SAS serves on the steering committee of Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) and works to raise the profile of LGBTQ experiences of policing and criminalization.
