About Us



The Flatbush Tenant Coalition is a member-led group of tenant associations in Flatbush, East Flatbush, and South Crown Heights working collectively to build tenant power. Acting together, we advocate to improve the lives of tenants so families have safe, decent, and affordable housing. We organize and support tenant associations and develop tenant leaders. We educate tenants about their rights and how to organize to make change. We take united action in campaigns to strengthen tenant rights in NYC and across the state. Working together to build tenant power, we help to create a more just and equitable society.

The Flatbush Tenant Coalition is a member-led group of more than 65 active tenant associations. Our mission is to build tenant power in central and south Brooklyn. Collectively, we represent more than 19,000 tenants. We organize tenant associations and develop skilled and informed tenant leaders to stop harassment, preserve safe & decent housing, and challenge the oppressive systems that disenfranchise low-to-moderate income tenants, especially people of color. Together, we work to create a more just and equitable society.

  1. My name is Collette Allen and im trying to obtain a Pro Bono lawyer or Legal Aide lawyer to deal with a landlord that rented me and my husband a room in an illegal basement and we would like our rent money returned, because she put in a hold over against us when the city deemed the premises illegal. We no longer live there but we want to fight for our money because she knowing rented us an illegal dwelling and then wanted to throw us out on the street.
