Dr. Charlotte Phillips
I am the Co-Founder and currently serve as the Chairperson of Brooklyn For Peace.
I am a general primary care pediatrician, and retired from clinical practice in March 2012, after practicing for 20 years in the New York City public hospital system, where I provided continuity of care to a diverse community of patients from the African- American, Haitian, Jamaican, Latin American, West African, Middle Eastern and South Asian communities, all of which are represented in Brooklyn. I was also on the faculty of SUNY-Downstate.
I co-founded Brooklyn Parents for Peace in 1984 as a network of parents all of whom had children in the same daycare center in Brooklyn. I have been involved in various ways for the past 29 years, and continue to be committed to the growth and development of Brooklyn For Peace as a non-sectarian, non-partisan, locally-based, multi-issue organization. As a pediatrician, I see war and violence as critical public health issues; as a parent and grandparent, I see the well-being and (even the existence) of future generations at stake.
