The Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network is a grassroots movement and campaign to prevent the displacement of low-to-middle income people, elders, families and mom-and-pop businesses from Brooklyn. They say, “Not 1 more person displaced! Not 1 more luxury development, until we have affordable housing for all!”

In November 2015, the Brooklyn Museum hosted the fifth annual Only Brooklyn® Real Estate Summit, sponsored by the commercial real estate brokerage firm TerraCRG.

f the summit featured some of the most powerful real estate moguls in Brooklyn, the demonstration outside included several of the most visible anti-gentrification activists in the borough, who were protesting under the banner of a coalition called the Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network, which encompasses more than a dozen community activist organizations.
