6 ways BMC made World History in 2013
(and just last month)

Members Rising

Parents Unplugged

This past May we asked you to take over BMC. Since then we’ve held two member orientations and our first annual membership meeting last month. Now we’re more than a hundred dues paying members, allies, & supporters strong. Become a member now.
A few months after publishing a seminal report on Community School District 16, BMC began holding leadership trainings with PTA change makers from five local schools. The Parent Organizing Working Group is now in full effect.

Stopping the Frisk

Men Step Correct

As part of our participation in the Communities for Police Reform coalition, we co-sponsored a forum on stop-and-frisk, and held our local elected officials accountable in a way that ensured the NY City Council overturned Bloomberg’s veto of the Community Safety Act. And for the last two years, our members and allies having been sharing stories on-line about the local impact of abusive and discriminatory policing. Join us for a town hall discussion on next steps for the Community Safety Act on Thursday, November 14, 6pm at Restoration Plaza. RSVP today.
We turned up the volume on street harassment with appearances on blogs, television and newspapers. Just last month the Anti-Street Harassment Working Group occupied Potamac Playground, on Tompkins and Macon, listening to the experiences of local women and men, and distributing “We've Got Your Back” palm cards. And on October 19th, the Working Group participated in “Between the Door and the Street,” an event organized by the Brooklyn Museum that feature a public stoop discussion on street harassment. Check it out.

No Politricks Zone

Food Co-op Nation

This summer, for the first time in recent memory, there was a series of coordinated debates on the political future of Central Brooklyn. BMC sponsored several city council candidate forums and published an on-line voter guide along with a candidate questionnaire. Things will never be the same. We promise.
Since our organizing meeting on August 20, nearly 40 community residents, now working across three different committees, have answered the call to start a food co-op. Join us.
