Get Organized BK Meeting

  • Congregation Beth Elohim Ballroom 274 Garfield Place Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Join WHARR at the first Get Organized BK (GOBK) meeting of the fall!

This month's focus is: "After Charlottesville, what must we do?" Panelists include:

  • Close Rikers, an effort to reduce the impacts of mass incarceration and close what is perhaps the largest physical monument to racial injustice in our city.
  • Right to Know Act, a campaign to prevent discriminatory policing and improve communication, transparency, and accountability between NYPD and New Yorkers.
  • School integration, to confront the shameful reality that 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, NYC’s schools remain stubbornly segregated — sorting opportunity by race and class across generations.

Following the panel, join WHARR for our break-out session!

Visit the GOBK website for more information and to RSVP. (Space is limited, so please RSVP ahead of time!)
