Barclays Center opens in September, but we have yet to see the benefits promised for our tax dollars. Brooklyn demands better! Join the Committee for Arena Justice, community members, religious leaders and local elected officials to demand stronger oversight and the housing and jobs promised.
Join local community organizations and BrooklynSpeaks at these important events to speak up for accountability and responsibility at Atlantic Yards and Barclays Center. This rally to demand stronger oversight and promised housing and jobs takes place:
Corner of Atlantic and South Portland Avenues, Brooklyn
Sunday, June 10, 3 p.m.
The Committee is being organized by Brown Community Development Corporation (whose event Michelle and I spoke at last month), and is a coalition of clergy from central Brooklyn, including Rev. Clinton M. Miller, Rev. Mark Taylor, Rev. Conrad Tilard, Rev. Lemuel Mobley, Rev. Washington Lundy, Rev. Dr. Cleotha Robertson, Rev. Dr. Clive Neal, Rev. Michael Sniffen, Rev. Ivan Washington, Rev. John Merz, Rev. Linda Bell, Rev. Shaun J. Lee, Rev. Daran H. Mitchell, Rev. Reginald L. Bacchus, Rev. Willie Wade Jr. and others.
The Park Slope Civic Council is one of the founding organizations of BrooklynSpeaks, a coalition that advocates for accountable development at Atlantic Yards involving local communities and elected officials in a meaningful way.
