We’re proud to announce the launch of the Neighborhood Strength website documenting community-led change in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. 

The multimedia storytelling report, done for Brooklyn Community Foundation, works to share the answer to the question “What happens when a foundation puts neighborhood residents in charge of local grantmaking?

Human Rights Watch recently put out a report about opioid and heroin addiction and access to the life-saving overdose reversal drug Naloxone. We are proud to have been asked to film the video to accompany it. This is an important topic that hits home to many people in the U.S. right now. The prevalence of opioid abuse has increased drastically over the last few years, and it is important for people to be informed about Naloxone. Organizations like North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition are ensuring easy access to Naloxone as it can save a loved one from an overdose and give them another chance to seek help to eliminate their addiction.
