Anthonine Pierre

Deputy Director- Brooklyn Movement Center (BMC)

As the Deputy Director of the Brooklyn Movement Center (BMC), Anthonine oversees the organization’s member engagement and communications efforts in addition to community safety organizing campaigns. Anthonine’s Central Brooklyn organizing work has included co-founding No Disrespect, BMC’s abolitionist anti-street harassment collective, and supporting the family of Saheed Vassell, a Crown Heights resident killed by NYPD officers in 2018. Repping BMC in the police accountability coalition Communities United for Police Reform (CPR), Anthonine has led on several citywide campaigns, including #DefundNYPD, passing the Right to Know Act & the Justice for Eric Garner campaign. Anthonine joined BMC in 2011 with a steady resume in public policy, government relations and youth leadership development. Her passion for organizing is grounded in her Haitian immigrant upbringing in Giuliani-era New York City and her love of Octavia Butler. When she’s not trying to move dope people together towards the afrofuture, you can find her biking around her native Flatbush with her husband, Jeffrey. Contact her at
