Stewarding our land at 53 PPW
Jul 14 @ 11:00 am
Stewarding our land at 53 PPW @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Join us for this colloquy where we will explore the meaning of stewarding property in these times. At 53 Prospect West, we have a historic building with NYC Landmark status. We have an old house that needs constant upkeep. We see several hundred people a week in and out our doors and on our lawn for a range of activities all while we lack accessibility for wheelchair users and others. Here we care for the earth and the human community who enters.

Considering all our values and assets together, we invite you to this circle to consider deeply how we carry the responsibility of managing land and our building at 53 PPW.

This colloquy is offered by longtime member Rebecca Lurie as chair of the Building and Grounds Committee.

Evening On The Green New Deal
Jul 25 @ 7:30 pm
Evening On The Green New Deal @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

When Alexandria Ocasio Cortez proposed in the House of Representatives a Bill, THE GREEN NEW DEAL, as road map for a healthier, more democratically cooperative, equal and kind, American political economy, a possible vision built on a century’s worth of activism was born, and many of us took notice.

The conversation amongst neighbors about these issues kept expanding and has grown to become the Windsor Terrace/Park Slope Neighbors for a Green New Deal Planning Committee, committed to building out our own understanding of these issues as they apply to our lives here while taking a healthy look around our neighborhoods and figuring out from a block/neighborhood perspective what can be done in Windsor Terrace and Park Slope to make it a better place.

You are a member of Windsor Terrace/Park Slope Neighbors for A Green New Deal if you live here and we need you to join with us in building out a collaborative effort to make our homes and blocks better places for all its residents to live.

The Sunrise Movement is a nationally organized mass movement committed to the activism necessary for a successful transformation to a Green New America in 10 years. (SunriseMovement.org)
Co-sponsored by the Ethical Living Committee of the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture.
