FTC Shows ‘UNITY’ As Benefit Brunch Draws Hundreds in Brooklyn

On Saturday, February 18th, 2017, Flatbush Tenant Coalition (FTC) welcomed more than 350 tenant leaders, family, friends, and neighbors to our 2nd Annual U.N.I.T.Y. Benefit Brunch where guests enjoyed a beautiful space; delicious food; amazing music; powerful presentations and so much more!

Most importantly, we DOUBLED our fundraising from last year!!

The exciting program was carried out by tenant leaders Sherry Ann Bain, Ruth Riddick, and Marie Laroche — who spoke about our collective fight for a more just Housing Court, recapped our historic trip to the Women’s March on Washington and faithfully moderated the event from start to finish (respectively).
