In this highly charged election season, we're reminded of the gaps between ideas and actions. Read below how BMC not only talks a big game, but we produce as well, from fighting abusive policing, and liberation trainings, to bringing people together to secure solar energy and environmental justice for Central Brooklyn.

Power Up
BMC is working hard to lower environmental and energy burdens for Central Brooklyn. For instance, we're supporting a legislative proposal to put a surcharge on the use of plastic bags. Also, in response to projections that Con Edison will not be able to meet the energy demands of a rapidly gentrifying Central Brooklyn, BMC has helped organize the Brooklyn Alliance for Sustainable Energy (BASE) and has announced a campaign to solarize Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights and the surrounding area.

If you are a homeowner and want to learn if you can affordably install solar panels on your roof, take this quick survey and get details on a May 19th campaign roll out event.
