Did you know that 23% of Brooklynites live in poverty? That’s around 600,000 people, including children, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Government funding for vital programs is shrinking and can directly affect this borough’s poor and underprivileged.
Brooklyn Community Services is doing something about it with the ONE Brooklyn Community Campaign. I’ve joined them in this fight and hope you will, too, through donations and volunteering.
“This September MTA subway riders will experience the ONE Brooklyn Community campaign on over 30 subway platforms throughout Brooklyn. The concept blends images of local tastemakers, luminaries, investors and iconic natives with the clients that BCS serves. The campaign is powered by our partner, Investors Bank. The launch of the ONE Brooklyn Community campaign includes a launch party at Events at Stone Park, mini-documentary, social media, traditional media, and community outreach.”
Brooklyn should be made better for everyone, not just a small section. Watch a piece of my interview with Brooklyn Community Services for the campaign below.
