In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement

In the days following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, Brooklyn has emerged as an epicenter of activism.

In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement Persist Brooklyn has joined in demanding racial justice and government accountability. By mobilizing our network to support protesters and join them, by partnering with In the Fight NBK to create a NYC police accountability lobbying guide and Day of Action to call on officials to adopt progressive police reform, we honor our mission to dismantle structural oppressive forces such as racism in our communities, government, and media narratives. The fight for racial equality intersects with every aspect of our electoral work and we move forward with the urgency and persistence that this moment requires.
