Great discussion on racial justice amongst neighbors and community partners at today's @FlatbushTenants Coalition meeting!
I thought we were just going to talk about rent increases. What I got was a diverse group of neighbors discussing the history of institutional, interpersonal, ideological and internalized forms of oppression which continues to affect our society today, and its effects on housing.
The discussion was done in such a way that most people felt comfortable in sharing their opinions, and no one was disrespected.
Special thanks to the Flatbush Tenants Coalition for organizing this workshop and allowing me to participate. Below is a pic of their upcoming events and workshops.
