COMMUNITY RESOURCE LIBRARY & KNOWLEDGE/INFORMATION SHARING

FUREE CREATED THIS RESOURCE LIBRARY WITH THE INTENTION OF COLLECTING A WIDE RANGE OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES, KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION FOR PUBLIC USE! WE WANT OUR COMMUNITIES TO FIND THE THINGS THEY NEED, WHEN THEY NEED THEM… AND TO FACILITATE POWER-BUILDING THROUGH MAKING THINGS EASILY ACCESSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO ALWAYS SEEK TO LEARN MORE!

This resource library is broken down in sections and categories that will be updated on a continuous basis (in alphabetical order by categories then resource titles) as we gather and collect more. We always welcome new information so please email Shatia Strother, Program Coordinator (shatia@furee.org) if there are resources and information you’d like to share and have us include here!

All resources are provided through clickable links to external sources (websites, PDF’s, etc.)

NYCHA created online annual reviews– Residents at 28 developments, across all five boroughs, began completing their annual reviews online. More developments were phased in, with more going digital this March 1. Tenants will register at https://selfserve.nycha.info/eservice_enu/ to complete their online annual review, just as they have done each year on paper, and attach the supporting documents. Tenants have received letters in the mail about this change and flyers have been posted throughout the buildings.

What It Means to Be A Member

Change takes collective power and FUREE welcomes all levels of participation.

We believe that for any campaign or movement to be truly effective, it must be led by those directly affected by the policies we are working to change.  To that end, FUREE membership is more than paying a small membership fee and getting a monthly newsletter.

FUREE members are committed, accountable, and actively engaged in planning, campaigning, outreach, volunteering, and many other aspects of FUREE.

We encourage you to carefully read through our Membership Manual and Membership Agreement which outlines membership expectations and responsibilities. Once you’re ready to commit, email us or call (718) 852-2960. We’ll set up an in-person visit to talk through the membership process, your vision for being involved and much more.

We’re excited to have you join us!

Join Us

Thousands of working class families in Brooklyn feel voiceless, powerless and hopeless about gentrification, economic inequalities, and the growing inability to make ends meet. We need better opportunities, role models and positive outlets for the youth in our communities. Frustrated by City officials making decisions about OUR neighborhoods, OUR schools, and OUR resources?  Do you want to do something but aren’t sure what or how to do it?

At FUREE, we work to empower working class Brooklyn families and communities to work together and find solutions to shared problems. We believe that real change comes from the collective power and action of the people who are affected by the issues, and we invite you to join us.
