Community coalitions

Community coalitions

Communities Resist represents or actively participates in over a dozen community-led coalitions that serve many neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens, in a concerted effort to prevent large-scale displacement of vulnerable tenants. These coalitions address neighborhood rezonings in low-income communities, land use actions, advocacy around impact legislation and City Charter reform. One such long-standing coalition is Mobilization Against Displacement, which aims to ensure that neighborhoods like North Brooklyn remain the diverse and vibrant communities that are called home by many poor and working-class families. Additionally, our staff actively works with several local Community Boards and their subcommittees on issues related to housing and neighborhood rezonings. CoRe actively participates in the following coalitions:

  • Basement Apartments Safe for Everyone (BASE)
  • End Warehousing
  • Equality4Flatbush
  • Stand for Tenant Safety (STS)
  • Coalition against Tenant Harassment (CATH)
  • Housing Justice for All
  • Right to Counsel
  • Housing Court Must Change
  • Rent Strike Legal Support
  • Racial Impact Study
  • Thriving Communities – Comprehensive Planning
  • Mobilization Against Displacement (MAD)
  • Broadway Triangle

“After years of feeling powerless against our abusive landlord who wasn't providing heat and hot water nor repairing my apartments, my neighbors and I had no other choice than to reach out for help. With the help of our attorney from Communities Resist we were able to organize a Tenant Association and fight back against the abusive landlord. We finally won.”

-Ramona Bash - 316 Suydam St. Tenant Association
