Upcoming Event: Brooklyn in Solidarity

Please join us for Brooklyn in Solidarity, a unique event with participants from Saint Ann’s School, Brooklyn Friends School, Berkeley Carroll School, and Packer Collegiate Institute on Tuesday, April 18th from 5-7 PM. Please plan to arrive at 4:45 so that the activities may start promptly. The program will begin with a youth-facilitated activity that enables us to examine the recent immigration policies and their impact. Following this discussion and activity period, we will hear from a panel of youth activists working on these issues in various Brooklyn communities. Pizza and light refreshments will be served.

Why: To learn how you can help local immigrant communities who are affected by recent policy actions

Brooklyn in Solidarity will bring together 75 – 100 community members from our four schools for an interactive conversation with local community leaders—a student/young adult will represent each group. Participating groups will include:
