Anti-Gun Violence Community Mural Painting Day
The Mediation Center has been for working for the past three years with a committee of Crown Heights leaders to address the social factors that lead to gun violence in our community. Simultaneously a group of young adults have been working with Assemblyman Camara to address this issue. This summer we've partnered together with the American Friends Service Committee, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, Groundswell Community Mural Project, and the Damon S. Allen Foundation to work with 16 youth and 2 artists to create this mural on the Alternate Learning Center wall. The group is currently in the process of working collaboratively to design the mural. Are you interested in getting to know the young people and other partners? Want to see what it's really like to paint a community mural? Join us on Tuesday, August 4th from 11:00am-1:00pm for a community painting day!
