Brooklyn Movement Center
The Brooklyn Movement Center is a direct-action community organizing group based in Central Brooklyn. With neighbors and community allies, we are establishing a base of members looking to fight for social justice in the area. We are a place where community organizing is connected with good ideas and progressive policies as a way to bring power to Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights residents.
Our organizing strategy lives at the intersection of traditional grassroots community organizing, a strong communications platform and relevant public policy analysis. We believe that, beyond bringing people to the table, it is important to transform how we see our neighborhoods and how we talk about community issues.
