In Solidarity with Our Bangladeshi Community

Jesse Hamilton

Yesterday, we stood in solidarity with the Bangladeshi community in Crown Heights. We are so lucky to enjoy the limitless hospitality of the Baitush Sharaf Jame Masjid and Islamic Center (Youth Committee).

Tomorrow, join together again as we stand in solidarity with fellow Brooklynites. We will hear from neighborhood leaders, elected officials, and clergy who will speak about the Kensington community and our collective commitment to keep our neighbors safe—and make sure all of our rights are protected.


  • Kensington Stands in Peace & Solidarity
  • Friday, December 15, 2017 (Tomorrow)
  • 2:30-3:30 PM
  • Avenue C Plaza (at McDonald Avenue in Kensington)


Last year, many celebrated Kensington as a “Hate Free Zone,” led by young people, immigrants, and Muslims, with the rest of us joining in solidarity. The gathering tomorrow will build on that simple, powerful and patriotic idea.
