Some of our priorities include:
- Holding negligent landlords accountable
- Improving local parks in Crown Heights
- Improving services for people with disabilities
- Getting to know our neighbors
- More books, librarians, and other resources to schools
On Friday night, leaders with Together Because met in Crown Heights to share our priorities and take steps towards action. We agreed that we must be wary of "activity" that does not on its own lead to change, like research, discussions that go nowhere, and education for education's sake. Instead, we must take "action", which achieves a specific desired reaction and is the oxygen for any organization.
