New York Communities for Change

In May 2017, NYCC will launch a member-led community defense network in Flatbush to protect its Latinx, Caribbean, and Middle Eastern immigrant members and neighbors from deportations, police brutality, and mass incarceration—all of which disproportionately affect Brooklyn’s immigrant, especially Black immigrant, populations.
