Day 43: Town Hall in BedStuy

image

Approximately 250 Brooklyn residents came together for a town hall meeting in Bed Stuy. I was fortunate enough to be able to go and hear from Ferguson organizers, like Tef Poe, families of Ramarley Graham and Kenneth Chamberlain, and New Yorkers organizing against police brutality. My heart is hopeful. This is what you don’t see on TV-black, brown, and white folks coming together, envisioning change.
