Anthonine Pierre
Anthonine Pierre is a Brooklyn-born Haitian facilitator, organizer and storyteller. Increasingly, in a post-COVID world, her work revolves around themes of sustainability, grief, home and Black leisure.

As the Executive Director of the Brooklyn Movement Center (BMC), Anthonine works to sustain movement organizing in Black Brooklyn now and for future generations. Her dynamic community organizing at BMC since 2011 has ranged from facilitating Community School District 16 parent leadership trainings to supporting the family of Saheed Vassell, a Crown Heights resident killed by NYPD officers in 2018, to organizing Black-led responses to street harassment and gender-based violence with a Black woman-led collective known as No Disrespect.

Anthonine has over 20 years of facilitation and public speaking experience. From 2015-2019, Anthonine facilitated government advocacy trainings for over 500 movement leaders across New York State as a trainer with the Advocacy Institute. She is also two-time alum of the national embodied leadership program Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD).

Anthonine has also held positions at the Prospect Park Alliance, the Children’s Defense Fund-NY, and the Manhattan Borough President’s Office. When she’s not trying to move dope people, you can find her biking around Flatbush with her husband, Jeffrey.
