East Brooklyn Congregations Wins Commitment in Fight for Respect and Cleaner Streets

101 leaders from 8 institutions from East Brooklyn Congregations in New York descended on the Brooklyn Sanitation North headquarters in East Williamsburg to clean up the trash and get rid of the disrespect.

When leaders from EBC visited the headquarters last month on April 2nd, they were tossed out of the lobby.  But on May 1st, the action was different. At the sanitation office, EBC demanded and received a public commitment to meet with Chief Steven Costas, Director of the Bureau of Cleaning and Collection on Thursday, May 25th. “It’s very basic that you should have clean streets, but we don’t,” said Bed-Stuy resident Sabrina Perry.
