Moving Forward, Together: Flatbush Tenants, Community Members Gather for Special Post-Election Convening on Human Rights & Organizing

As the new presidency draws closer, we already see the America it wants to create: increased repression, racism, sexism, fear, and hate.

On Saturday, December 10th, 2016, more than 80 Flatbush Tenant Coalition leaders & members packed inside Baptist Church of the Redeemer for our first post-election meeting — a Special Convening on Human Rights and Organizing in the New Era.

What an incredible turnout!

We spoke with social justice leaders about the changes we can expect, which resources are available to us, and the opportunities for us to build community and power while protecting our families and neighbors in this new political era. Our main takeaway: fighting repression & racism at the national level means fighting locally.


Many thanks to our engaged, supportive, and resilient tenant leaders! Also, a huge thank you to our amazing guest speakers:

We are built for this moment! We are strong & ready for this fight! Bring it on.
