Brooklyn Eviction Defense

Brooklyn Eviction Defense is a coalition of tenants in solidarity with tenants facing eviction, harassment, and housing insecurity.

Manifesto: No Evictions!

Brooklyn Eviction Defense (BED) is an autonomous organization of tenants fighting against the eviction machine through direct action and collective organizing. BED came out of a coalition of tenant unions in the summer of 2020, in response to the looming avalanche of evictions created by the combination of federal and state eviction moratoriums and a refusal to cancel rent. Our work takes many forms including blockades, stoop watches, tenant association organizing, tenant support, preventive targeted outreach, data work, propaganda and political education.
