The Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network (BAN) is a people of color-led, mass-based coalition of tenants, homeowners, block associations, anti-police brutality groups, legal and grassroots organizations working together to end the rampant gentrification and displacement of low to middle income residents of Brooklyn.

In the past, BAN has organized multiple Brooklyn-wide protests against white supremacy, gentrification, and police brutality attracting an estimated 500+ people. BAN has also been active in fights against Mayor De Blasio's Housing Plan, the upzoning of Empire Blvd, Alicia Glen (Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development which attempted to bring Amazon to Queens), rezonings in Bushwick, the fight against Industry City plan to rezone Sunset Park,  and other progressive struggles.
