Brooklynites testify before city’s Racial Justice Commission


The city’s Racial Justice Commission met Wednesday for the second time, and for the first time in Brooklyn, allowing borough residents the chance to testify about the ways city government can change its laws to foster greater racial equity.

The meeting was the second of five public input meetings the commission is holding, one in each borough. The first meeting took place on Staten Island last week. The commissioners will head to Queens Thursday night for the third meeting.
