THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15 – 7:30PM *Q&A WITH BROOKLYN LEGAL SERVICES*
Living in Brooklyn has become an act of resistance, as working-class New Yorkers continue to be pushed out of their homes by real estate developments and landlords who strategically withhold repairs, heat, or hot water. The most successful technique to combat rights infringement is the coordinated work of residents, legal aids and community organizers. This short film documents residents in South Williamsburg, home to some of the largest rent spikes in the city, as they implement “The Method” to saving the neighborhood. After the film, members of Brooklyn Legal Services will explain their services, answer questions, and facilitate conversation. This film was made with the help and continued support of Los Sures (Southside United), St Nicks Alliance, The Peoples Fire House, and the office of Council Member Antonio Reynoso.
