Vision & Values
A fair and just Brooklyn, built on dignity and respect, where all residents have the opportunity to participate and prosper.
Five core values guide everything we do:
Courage. We believe in fearlessly identifying the real barriers to change and we fight for solutions that help overcome injustice.
Creativity. We believe that the power of imagination is greater than the challenges we face. We celebrate what works. We pursue the new. We learn as much from failure as we do from success.
Honesty. We are committed to being open and trustworthy in all we do and seek partners who share our values.
Collaboration. We believe in creating solutions together, harnessing the diversity of Brooklyn, and partnering with the community to spark change and produce results.
Respect. We believe in every resident’s dignity and basic human rights, and honor the diversity of race, gender and backgrounds.
