Campaign to Address Police and Community Violence in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Planning grant to launch and pilot a multi-faceted organizing campaign to address/decrease community and police violence in Red Hook, Brooklyn, to be developed and carried out by youth and adult residents of Red Hook. RHI will address the crisis of increased violence through: A) Community-led violence prevention and response; and B) a campaign to decrease police violence. Some of the strategies we will employ are short-term and will be launched immediately, while others will require time to research effective models, raise funds, train staff, and prepare to launch the full campaign.
