Stop-and-Frisk on Trial: Update!
Sign the petition!

Join Communities United for Police Reform in a petition campaign to end discriminatory policing practices in New York, and to build a lasting movement that promotes public safety and policing practices based on cooperation and respect, not discriminatory targeting and harassment.

Monday May 20 was the last day in court with closing arguments on both sides in the “Stop-and-Frisk” trial (Floyd et al. vs. City of New York). This landmark case, brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of millions of New Yorkers illegally stopped by the NYPD over the past seven years, is the first class-action lawsuit challenging the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practice to be tried in federal court.

People Turn Out To Drones Forum

Feb 21, 2013

Some 70 people packed into the Commons, a meeting space on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, to hear speakers Nick Mottern and Ann Wright, discuss drones – pilotless planes that are increasingly being used to wage war by the United States in many areas around the world.

Tens of Thousands March For Climate Action Now!

They came by the tens of thousands – to the nation’s capitol. Their demand was “Save Our Planet.” It was a protest to demand immediate and urgent action to reverse the course of climate change; to change the path of dependency on fossil fuels which is slowly but surely leading to destruction and decline of what has become a fragile environment.

It was a bitterly cold and windy day but that didn’t stop people from marching around the White House to tell the President to be true to his words and reject the ominous and hazardous Keystone XL pipeline.

As Congress Debates Cuts,
People Demand Jobs Not Wars!

Jobs Not Wars

is a new national campaign that has over 130 sponsoring organizations and has collected over 50,000 signatures on an online petition to inject the question of out-of-control military spending into the debate on the budget.

And YOU can be be part of it.

JOBS NOT WARS is a time-limited, nation-wide petition campaign to urge the president and congress to abandon austerity solutions to the deficit and instead to end the war, cut military spending, tax the super-rich, and redirect resources to restore and protect the social safety net, create jobs, deal with climate change and meet other urgent social needs.

For Peace & Justice: Join Brooklyn For Peace!

Brooklyn For Peace believes that many of the issues of common concern to Brooklynites are linked. As a multi-issue non-partisan non-sectarian organization, we connect the dots between endless wars, local gas pipelines, national energy policy, and the draining of our tax money away from human services and towards the Pentagon. For over 25 years, Brooklyn For Peace has conducted educational programs and provided varied opportunities to take action. We realize again this year how important it is for us to work together to break the barriers to meaningful change in our national priorities.

Please join us in our commitment to building a movement for peace and justice! Donate and become a member of Brooklyn For Peace. Your donation is tax-deductible in 2012 if it’s postmarked by December 31, or if you donate on-line before midnight, December 31. Some of our activities thus far in 2012: Continue reading
