The Brooklyn Movement Center (BMC) is a community organizing group based in Bed-Stuy. The BMC brings together residents of Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights to identify issues of importance to them, build power and improve conditions in their community.
Brooklyn Movement Center is dedicated to social justice. To those ends we are involved with several different city-wide coalitions.Social Justice Movements
Street harassment is a problem facing women around the world. The Brooklyn Movement Center’s Street Harassment committee is percolating with creative ideas on how to tackle this issue in Bed-Stuy. If you’re interested in digging deeper into this issue on your own, click the links below for a curated collection of tools and resources.Street Harassment Toolkit
We believe Food Justice is the right of communities everywhere to produce, process, distribute, access, and eat good food regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, religion, or community. This toolkit provides food system resources available to Central Brooklyn residents through multiple lenses.Food Justice Toolkit
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.
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.
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.
