Our Eyes Are On You: Time to Lead

Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 2.20.37 PM.png

Here in Brooklyn we’re represented by two of the most powerful Democrats in the country: Chuck Schumer and Hakeem Jeffries. But instead of leading and vocally supporting Closing the Camps, a Green New Deal, impeachment, and defunding ICE, they keep making excuses.

With white supremacist violence on the raise, children coming home from school to find their parents have been detained by ICE and the climate crisis worsening by the minute we need our leaders to be BOLD.

Join us to tell them both that their constituents are watching and they need to step it up because people’s lives are on the line. We’ll be meeting outside Rep. Jeffries' office in Fort Greene and then marching over to Sen. Schumer’s building in Park Slope with lots of visual props and flyers to engage passersby.

Fight for Climate Justice -- Deep Canvassing with INBK

IMG_5728.jpg

NEW PROJECT ALERT! Join us to knock doors for the climate!

SIGN UP HERE

WHY: The climate crisis is too urgent to wait for the next election cycle to enact climate justice and climate action. That’s why we’re going to dust off our door-knocking skills to start deep canvassing in our neighborhoods. 

WHEN: We already have new canvass days scheduled in Brooklyn: March 30 and April 7th. Each day will start at 10:00 am and run till 2 pm.

WHAT: Each session will start with an hour of training.  Then, after a short coffee/snack break, we'll buddy up and go door to door to talk to our neighbors about their hopes and fears around climate change, with the goal of empowering everyone to take political action to protect our communities and our planet. This month, we’ll be especially focused on informing our neighbors about the Climate and Community Protection Act, which would push NY toward 100% renewables by 2050, protect frontline and low-income communities from climate consequences, and create fair, green jobs. 

WHO: YOU! Your friends! Your families

Note we welcome co-sponsors, collaboration and expansion to other parts of the city! Send us a message if you’d like more info.

INBK General Meeting: 2020 Vision

IMG-5769.JPG

Join us for an exciting general meeting! This month we will be focused on brainstorming for 2020 from elections for the State Assembly & Senate, to Congress and yes even to the Presidency (in a non-candidate specific kind of way)

Where should we focus our energy? Which local seats should we target? What are our policy priorities? Should we adopt districts outside of NY? Do we even want to endorse in the Presidential primary? Where can we have the most impact? How do we win back our Democracy and save the planet? 

There is so much to think about so we want to hear from everyone about your priorities, hopes, worries and ideas. Please join us!

RSVP HERE (so we can get an idea of numbers, thanks).

Fair Elections Town Hall

Screen Shot 2019-02-17 at 9.34.50 PM.png

Featuring Congressman Jerrold Nadler and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, as well as State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Michael Gianaris, Chairman of State Senate Committee on Elections Zellnor Myrie, State Senator Liz Krueger, State Senator Brian Benjamin, State Senator Robert Jackson, State Assembly Member Richard Gottfried. Additional speakers to be announced.

A healthy democracy prioritizes and empowers the people it represents. A healthy democracy welcomes average citizens contributing to make their communities better. But for far too long, big money politics and the systematic disenfranchisement of voters has been chipping away at those ideals.

We have the power NOW to re-ignite and re-engage the people and build a stronger democracy, but we need our elected representatives to lead the charge.

Doors open at 1:00PM. Town Hall begins at 1:30PM. Seating will be first come for ticket holders.

RSVP Info HERE
