"I Ride with BMC"

  • I head our outreach and membership committee for the food cooperative that will open in Central Brooklyn in 2015. I believe communities of color can eat healthier, more affordably and more sustainably if we all share in the ownership and running of our own food system.

  • The friendships and community I've built here are everything to me, because, at BMC, 'civic engagement' is real. I've helped design an online voter guide, organize candidate debates, and introduce ways for residents to determine the city budget.

  • Through the Anti-Street Harassment campaign, I’m working to create the kind of community I believe we all want to live in: a place where 'good morning' is a simple greeting between neighbors, not a come-on.

  • In BMC's education work we are trying to improve the relationship between schools and the community. I have four young children in Bed-Stuy's public schools, and my hope is to see increased communication, knowledge, and parent participation within District 16.
