The Safe Neighborhood Campaign seeks to end hate, community, and police violence against LGBTSTSTGNC people of color and our neighbors and allies. The goals of the Safe Neighborhood Campaign are to empower community members to prevent violence before it starts, intervene while violence is happening, and to build stronger relationships among our neighbors, families, housemates, friends, intimate partners, cultural workers, small businesses, and community organizations.
Join Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Transgender, and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color and our neighbors as we build transformative justice together in Central Brooklyn!
Build a core network of survivors, community leaders, cultural workers, and longtime residents who are committed to increasing transformative justice practices in Central Brooklyn.
Build, share, and practice transformative strategies for community safety and wellness that work for us, on our blocks, and in our neighborhoods.
Through building and practicing transformative justice in Central Brooklyn, we will change the impacts of violence, policing, and displacement, and develop stronger safety networks in our neighborhoods.
