A badge and gun do not make someone a "peace officer." Whether it's through our anti-street harassment campaign, Crown Heights Cop Watch, or organizing skills training, BMC is creating conditions for respect, safety and mutual accountability among our neighbors. Ride along.

Centering the Margins: Black Women, Black Girls, Black Youth
This month, Third Rail evaluates the state of black leadership in Central Brooklyn with Joanne Smith (Girls for Gender Equity) and Nakisha Lewis (The Ms. Foundation for Women). We discuss the different ways Black women and girls are claiming space in our current movement moment and what's being done to build youth leadership. Listen here.
