Make It Happen! is still recruiting!

Make It Happen! is an OVC (Office of Victims of Crime) funded program run in partnership with the Center for Court Innovation's Domestic Violence department. The program is geared toward young men of color, ages 16-24, and aims to give participants the tools necessary to overcome traumatic experiences, and to be able to succeed in spite of those experiences through one-on-one and group sessions. 

We are now recruiting participants for our next cycle. For more information, email or call Kenton Kirby at kkirby@crownheights.org or at (718) 773-6886.

Arts to End Violence Gallery Opening

On Thursday, May 22nd, the Ron Taylor gallery on St. Johns Place opened its doors for an evening to celebrate community, creativity, and the message of anti-violence. Over 50 works of art by youth and professional artists were submitted to the annual Arts to End Violence contest and displayed at the gallery.

In addition to the gallery, Greater Restoration Baptist Church, next door, was open, and Pastor Kenneth Bogan of the church performed songs outside with his jazz band. 


Program Coordinator for YO S.O.S. Ruby-Beth Buitekant spoke about the work of S.O.S. and the importance of having the community at an event like this. A young performer from the organization Girl Be Heard performed a song that she wrote about how gun violence has affected her life.


The gallery remains open for the community to view on May 28th - May 30th, from 2 pm to 6 pm, and from June 2nd - June 4th, from 2 pm to 6 pm.
