We are an all-inclusive community and justice volunteer organization by and for the people of Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

EL GRITO, Inc., known as El Grito de Sunset Park, is a nonprofit organization formed by the socially and economically disenfranchised in response to those in power and those who seek to disempower.  We are an all-volunteer organization based in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Over the years we have become a leader and prominent voice for justice and social change in New York City and across the nation.


Inspired by many gritos and their history of resistance, El Grito provides a platform on which to express and document the experiences of marginalized communities by encouraging civic engagement to protect human rights.

Who We Are

We are a group of activists, artists, and civic leaders dedicated to protecting the rights and improving the lives of everyone in our community.
