Important information re travel directions:

Subway directions: The 2 and 3 trains will NOT be running!
Take A or C train to High Street station. It is very important (really) to be on the back end of the train if coming from Manhattan and the front end if coming from out in Brooklyn. You will exit on Cadman Plaza West. Henry Street is roughly parallel and is easily accessed by a pedestrian walk just south (and slightly uphill) of the station. On Henry Street you will be a half block north of Orange Street, which starts there. Walk 1/2 block on Orange

Looking forward to seeing you there!

We are pleased to honor the Amy Goodman as PathMaker to Peace!

2014 Year in Review

Because of your contributions, this year we were able to:
(a partial list):

  • Sustain a full-time Program Coordinator, who is facilitating and energizing our programs. We continue to reach out to a younger generation, using cultural activities as well as social media.
  • Reach out to our neighbors with information, petitions, and postcards at street fairs and farmer’s markets. Continued outreach to our constituents to encourage our elected officials to oppose what now appears to be an endless war.
  • Hold a 2 week vigil against the war on Gaza at which we collected over two thousand signatures demanding an end to all attacks on civilians and an end to U.S. support of the Israeli occupation
  • Host community forums on a wide range of topics, including “Arts and Activism;” “In Search of a Nuclear Deal with Iran;” “The Invention of the White Race;” “The US in the Middle East;” “Whistleblowers and Surveillance;” “Life and Loathing in Greater Israel;” The Ongoing Genocide in Darfur and the Crisis in South Sudan;”; “Which Way Forward: Climate Chaos or Climate Justice?”; collaboration with Fort Greene Peace on a forum, “How Should the U.S. Respond to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria?”
  • Participate in NYC Millions March/Black LIves Matter! response to police killlings of Akai Gurley, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and others.  Provide resources and connections to ongoing activities.

Letter to Our Supporters: December 2014

Dear Friend,

2014 marks 30 years of Brooklyn For Peace working for peace and justice! We are writing now because your membership and financial support are crucial for us to maintain our current level of activity and to grow.

We are very appreciative of the kind words recently expressed by Noam Chomsky regarding the significance of our 30 year history and the importance of continuity and consistency in a grassroots group. The generosity of our members has made this possible. Simply put, without funds we can’t do the work!

Basic annual membership is $30. Larger donations are very much appreciated and will be put to good use in developing our program. If you’ve already contributed in 2014, please consider an additional end-of-the-year tax-deductible contribution.

You can donate on line at our website brooklynpeace.org using PayPal or a credit card.

If you prefer, you can mail a check to:

BFP, PMB 106, 41 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201.
You can call us at 718-624-5921 to use your credit card on the phone.

Become A Member of Brooklyn For Peace!

Since 2001, ten billion dollars have been taken from Brooklyn taxpayers and wasted on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A total of more than a trillion dollars overall has been spent on the wars. U.S.foreign policy and tax dollars are supporting the wrong policies in Israel, Latin America, Africa and the Mid East. In addition to countless lives here and abroad both lost and permanently maimed, we are also seeing this misallocation of resources result in drastic cutbacks of public services.

Brooklyn For Peace provides a voice for resistance! We participate in demonstrations, vigils, letter-writing, phone-call and petition campaigns. We work with a wide variety of other groups. We are out on the street with flyers and at neighborhood festivals. We provide visibility to the need for peaceful alternatives.

Just a few of our activities thus far in 2011:

  • 7th Annual Brooklyn Peace Fair at Brooklyn College, with Juan Gonzalez as the keynote speaker, emphasizing “Cut the Military Budget! We Need New Priorities!”
  • Participation in April 9 National Anti-War demonstration
  • Nuclear Zero Town Hall Meeting, launching petition campaign to have NYC declared as a Mayor’s City of Peace
  • Distributing flyers emphasizing cost of war to Brooklyn, on Tax Day in Brooklyn (Flatbush-Midwood) and on May 12 at the city-wide demonstration against cutbacks
  • Community Meeting on Libya, resulting in a statement and petition calling for alternatives to military action
  • Ongoing vigils for Darfur, keeping this issue in public view
  • CineForos (films with discussion) on Latin America
  • Joining with community members to support the building of a mosque in Sheepshead Bay, and sponsoring a workshop on Islamophobia at the Brooklyn Peace Fair

Most of our work is done by volunteers. However, even this e-mail message which you are now reading costs money to send!

We are only able to maintain our multi-faceted program by employing a full-time Program Coordinator. Funds are also needed to rent space in which to hold events, to print flyers and publicity materials, and to video our events to make them accessible to those not able to attend in person.

If you aren’t already a member, please take the opportunity now to join as well as to make a financial contribution. Your financial support is an important way of participating.

  • Click here to become a member.
  • Click here to make a donation. Annual membership is a suggested donation of $30 ($10 for students and those on a limited income.)
  • You can also mail your check to BFP, PMB 106, 41 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

All contributions are fully tax-deductible, and will be acknowledged with our thanks!
