A Wild Justice: The Death and Resurrection of Capital Punishment in America by Evan J. Mandery highlights LDF's role in the movement to end the death penalty. Mandery describes LDF as influential on "every major death penalty case in the United States" and "the leading voice in the abolition movement, dominating all others."
The New York Times highlighted the efforts of Communities United for Police Reform which recently achieved a major legal victory in the movement against Stop-and-Frisk tactics. LDF's representatives to CUPR are Lumumba Akinwole-Bandele and Marquis Jenkins.
