Brooklyn For Peace is looking for people who want to get updates about the peace & social justice work in their communities.

Our Focus

Our peace and social justice works extend and covers many important issues. We support other like-minded organizations by sponsoring and joining forces. The world stage is an ever-changing kaleidoscopic which presents a challenge to addressing every upcoming event that requires attention.  To better serve our community we look to finding ways to do that. We are currently focusing on these peace and social justice areas.

Committees/Working Groups

Get Involved! Our committees, working groups and campaign focus group meet regularly to plan and carry out work for peace, international law, climate change, social and economic justice. Help us continue to build and solidify foundations of peace with social and economic justice that will stand the tests of time.

Many of Brooklyn For Peace’s members were out and showing solidarity this past year. There’s still much work to do and we are continuing our outreach and collaborations. We have many ways in which you can support us.

Climate Action
Peace and Economic Justice Committee
