About Us

We are Brooklyn residents working together to defend democracy and human dignity, shine a light on corruption, resist hate and injustice, and love and protect our neighbors from harm.

Founded by Councilmember Brad Lander and Rabbi Rachel Timoner of Congregation Beth Elohim, this group serves as common ground for diverse Brooklynites to build our power together.

We are working with resource-partners and allies to stand up to racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, ableism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia and misogyny. To fight changes that would allow Wall Street to concentrate wealth and run roughshod over consumer protections. To preserve the social safety net that protects so many of us and our neighbors. To protect our planet from the devastating impact of climate change. To defend freedom of the press and voting rights. To strengthen our democracy.

This is a place to spark and take action. Whether you’ve been with us since our inception, for just a few moments, or any amount of time in between, your commitment matters. Sign up to join us in making a difference!
