Brooklyn Politics and Progressive Reform

CBID has fought for progressive reform since 1968. As a community-based club here in Brooklyn, Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats have been instrumental in the election of many candidates for public office.

Much of the success in Brooklyn politics has been a result of our question and answer forums with prospective candidates as well as our extensive on-the-street contact with our constituents.

Staunchly opposed to political corruption, we are proud of our independence and our commitment to progressive reform in city, state, and national politics. We are a vehicle for citizen empowerment and making government more accountable to our neighborhoods.

We meet monthly, usually on the 4th Thursday at 7pm at 410 6th ave. to discuss issues, neighborhood concerns and Brooklyn Politics, and would be delighted to have you join us.
