Join Council Member Letitia James, Coalition for the Homeless, Crown Heights Revitalization Movement (CHRM), neighborhood residents and local community groups, advocates for the homeless and public officials in a march over the Brooklyn Bridge, followed by a rally at City Hall to demand that the City abandon plans to move the men’s homeless intake center to Brooklyn’s Bedford Atlantic Armory, located in an already overburdened community.

Please support the fight of this misguided plan that will not benefit the City’s male homeless population (60% reside in Manhattan), and will harm a struggling community.

For more information please call: (718) 260-9191
