Speaking truth to power and holding elected officials’ feet to the fire. THIS is what democracy looks like.
And that’s why our community packed the house this past Saturday at our hugely successful 2016 NY State Assembly and Senate Candidate Forum!
The auditorium was filled to capacity;
Our tenant leaders got candidates on the record with public commitments;
And despite the crazy heat, the audience was eager to hear & say more on issues ranging from affordable housing, to educational & recreational opportunities for youth, to police accountability & Black Lives Matter.
Check out coverage of the forum on Ditmas Park Corner; a live-tweet of all the forum questions and answers; and photos on our Facebook page.
The candidate forum is an incredible step in our journey for stronger rent laws and a stronger Flatbush.
Next, we’ll meet with elected officials to remind them of their promises and our priorities; and we’ll flex our muscles with rallies & marches to remind them of our numbers & power.
Stay tuned for more info!
