Local leaders like Assemblywoman Annette Robinson (D-Brooklyn) participated. Participants marched to three housing complexes in Fort Greene.

Organizers say they have marched throughout Brooklyn before. Organizers say the march is only the first step. They say they plan to bring resources, such as education and employment information back to the housing complexes to help get residents on their feet.
