Speak Up For Brooklyn on October 13 with Majora Carter!

BrooklynSpeaks

BrooklynSpeaks is holding a fundraiser, presumably to help defray legal costs sure to be incurred fighting the ESDC's planned appeal of Judge Marcy Friedman's ruling that the state must prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Atlantic Yards.

Join BrooklynSpeaks for a special benefit to fight for accountable, sensible development at Atlantic Yards, and enjoy some great spicy flavors from Prospect Heights' favorite southwestern kitchen!

You'll hear about how other communities are working for sustainability from Majora Carter, internationally-recognized authority on community development, environmental justice, and green job training, a MacArthur “genius,” and host of the NPR series, “The Promised Land.” And you'll have a great time with friends sharing a vision for community engagement in Brooklyn's biggest development project.
