Brooklyn For Peace has joined others in a large and growing coalition of community, labor, peace and clerical organizations have gathered under the banner of Move The Money – NYC to promote passage of the Rodriguez resolution (No. 747-2019). You can see the resolution here.

Save the date. Spread the word, Join us on the steps of City Hall to ask our city to join the movement to—
MOVE THE MONEY –
FROM WAR TO OUR COMMUNITIES!
