I'm Good, You Smile

Tired of being told to smile?

As the weather gets warmer, it means more time outside - and more potential for unwanted and unwelcome harassment. Join BMC's anti-street harassment working group No Disrespect, The Safe OUTside the System Collective of the Audre Lorde Project, and Culture Push for Anti-Street Harassment Week!

Come through to make art, speak up, and connect with other women, queer, trans and gender non-conforming people who experience street harassment. We will have screen printing, de-escalation skills sharing, and opportunities to plug in to local organizing.

Community Listening Event: Police and Community Safety in Crown Heights

Join us as we showcase the results of the Voices of Crown Heights oral history project, organized in collaboration with the Brooklyn Historical Society and Weeksville Heritage Center.  The evening will highlight narratives from Crown Heights residents - all of whom were asked to relate their experiences with the police - and will help prompt a community dialogue on the meaning of "public safety."
