Fighting gentrification & holding police accountable

Fighting gentrification & holding police accountable

Equality for Flatbush (E4F) is a Black Lives Matter organization that has fought gentrification, displacement and police violence in Brooklyn, NY since 2013. We have only two goals: to end NYPD murders and to stop the displacement of low-to-middle income people from Brooklyn, NY. Led by Black and Brown lifelong and longtime New Yorkers, E4F believes in the abolition of the police, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and prisons.

E4F is a member-led grassroots organization of largely Black Caribbean women migrants and descendants of migrants of color. We have an holistic, trauma-informed approach to organizing that is steeped in the principles of demonstrating “revolutionary love,” practicing kindness, being relentless, and “having each other’s backs.” We organize our communities for social justice and change through street outreach, social media campaigns, as well as political and direct action.


Our sincerest apologies. Equality for Flatbush (E4F) closed down all of our #BrooklynShowsLove food distribution, financial and mutual aid work on October 31, 2021 .

Here are 31 pages of info about food pantries, community fridges , mutual aid groups, housing , employment, legal , etc resources across NYC that we have compiled :

Also please check Equality for Flatbush’s Instagram and Facebook pages for the latest info about weekly community fridge stockings, food, coats and toys distributions in Brooklyn.

Police/ICE Accountability Work


Afforable Housing








Equality for Flatbush stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and in resistance to settler colonial occupation. As an organization created by and for BIPOC who face the daily threat of state-sanctioned land theft, violence and displacement , we recognize the way that language has been used to mask the violence that our communities face. In Brooklyn, the language of a “rent dispute” or “quality of life issue” can unleash police brutality on our communities. In Sheikh Jarrah, the language of “property disputes” is used to describe the way that colonial settlers, often from the United States, violently force Palestinain people from their homes.

The violence and attempted displacement of entire communities such as Sheikh Jarrah during the Spring and Summer of 2021 is but another instance in the long history of attempts to remove the Palestinian people from their land. We condemn the United States government’s support for Israel’s state violence through funds, weapons, and training of their police and military forces. We recognize that the United States was built as a settler-colonial project which killed and stole from indigenous people, and we acknowledge how those tactics reverberate in current events.

We are working toward a world where the human rights to housing, healthcare, and safety are recognized for all, not only those who benefit from oppressive systems. We stand in solidarity with others working against apartheid, racism, colonization, and imperialism, in Palestine, Brooklyn, and beyond.

E4F’s Emergency Housing and Rent Fund

Since 2020 Equality for Flatbush (E4F) has provided emergency temporary housing and rental assistance for community members in need.
