Your Neighborhood Peace & Justice Group

A group of neighbors founded Prospect Lefferts Voices for Peace and Justice in the fall of 2001. Horrified by the loss of life on September 11, we also feared seeing our city's grief turned into an excuse for wars of aggression. We wanted to connect our desire for "peaceful tomorrows" on a global scale to efforts for social, economic, and racial justice in our own corner of Brooklyn.

What We Do

Who We Are

Many of us are parents. Some of us are teachers. We are immigrants and U.S.-born, from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds. Some of us are active in local churches. Not all of us actually live in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, but we all share a commitment to progressive organizing with a strong neighborhood base. We meet twice monthly to plan future activities and encourage each other in these discouraging times.

If you share our goals, we'd love you to join us. Please e-mail us for information at
