With each passing moment, power is shifting from BMC board members and staff to BMC members. This newsletter and others to follow will continue to chronicle this transformation and present you with opportunities to assume leadership in our police accountability, anti-street harassment, food sovereignty and citizen journalism work. Don’t sleep.
Join Us: Police Accountability
BMC has, for several months, been part of both local and national mobilizations against police abuse.  In just the latest example,  BMC rallied from Harlem to the U.N. on MLK Day at the #Dream4Justice march. We were among thousands on hand to dramatize that #BlackLivesMatter is not only a campaign for police accountability, but for human rights.
The time has come for BMC members to lead this work. We’re asking Central Brooklynites to come together under a new Police Accountability Working (PAW) Group similar to BMC’s education, anti-street harassment and food sovereignty action teams. The mission of PAW is to design and lead strategies and campaigns that ensure public safety through policy action, communications, political education and self-defense trainings.
Join this new working group by emailing us at Just want to be kept up to date? Join our Police Accountability mailing list.
