against gentrification & displacement
CoRe is a community-based law office that partners with communities of color in Brooklyn and Queens to combat predatory capitalism, gentrification and structural racism. We join our clients in the struggle to organize, assert their rights, and protect their homes. We work to ensure that community voices are centered in the decisions that impact their lives and neighborhoods. Ours is a resistance that plays out both inside the courtroom and on the streets, as we fight alongside those we serve to dismantle systemic injustice.
Communities Resist works closely with a network of over 20 community-based partners that organize tenants in Brooklyn and Queens to actively represent 110 tenant associations and over 2,250 individuals in both boroughs: from Williamsburg, Bushwick, East New York, and Brownsville in Brooklyn to Jackson Heights, Flushing, and Ridgewood in Queens. Ours is a resistance that plays out both inside the courtroom and on the streets, as we fight alongside those we serve to dismantle systemic injustice. As COVID-19 has devastated the neighborhoods we serve, further exacerbating glaring racial and economic disparities in this city, our services are rapidly expanding to meet an ever growing and urgent need.
