Red Hook Community Justice Center

Red Hook Community Justice Center Launched in June 2000, the Red Hook Community Justice Center is the nation's first multi-jurisdictional community court. See https://linktr.ee/RedHookJustice for information about open positions, program recruitment, upcoming events, and much more

Operating out of a refurbished Catholic school in the heart of a geographically and socially isolated neighborhood in southwest Brooklyn, the Justice Center seeks to solve neighborhood problems using a coordinated response. At Red Hook, a single judge hears neighborhood cases from three police precincts (covering approximately 200,000 people) that under ordinary circumstances would go to three different courts—Civil, Family, and Criminal.

Today was an amazing example of what it looks like when community organizing combines with political willpower!

We were thrilled to welcome Majority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer to the Red Hook Houses joining us in calling for Congress to #fullyfundnycha and invest in public housing as the critical infrastructure it is as a part of the #AmericanJobsPlan.

Senator Schumer joined Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, Assemblymember Marcela Mitaynes, State Sen. Jabari Brisport, Brooklyn Legal Services Corp A, the Red Hook Initiative, Hook Arts Media, the Red Hook NSTAT team, community leaders and residents!!

The persistent leaks, mold, pests, electrical fires, peeling lead paint and utility outages we respond to every day in the Red Hook Housing court and Housing Resource Center are symptomatic of decades of disinvestment that can only be reversed by capital investment. We were so proud to stand with our friends, neighbors and public officials today with one voice and demand for residents of public housing to have safe, healthy, stable homes. Pa’lante!
