BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others.

As we continue the ongoing battle for racial justice and an end to police violence, we want to maintain our unwavering support for our community and ensure that you continue to thrive. To that end, we have compiled a list of shared resources from local and national organizations.

These resources offer assistance, such as financial, legal, and mental health support and opportunities during these difficult times. They should not be mistaken for information distributed by city and state authorities.

In the coming days and weeks, finding ways to support one another will become especially crucial. The links below were compiled from BRIC's Racial Equity Steering Committee, Black Lives Matter, the Laundromat Project, and the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance, among others. We'll be continually updating this page as we learn of more resources.
