On Tuesday, November 16, 2010 the Daily News ran an article previewing our anti-gun violence film screening and discussion at LaunchPad. The S.O.S. Media Contest got a great plug at the end, complete with the following quote from our director, Amy Ellenbogen.
“Through its anti-violence program, SOS Crown Heights, the [Crown Heights Community Mediation Center] plans to launch a media campaign of its own, soliciting young artists to come up with posters, radio and and video spots and public service announcements with an anti-gun message for its 2011 Save Our Streets Multimedia Contest. “We want to transform the culture from one that’s tolerant of violence to one that’s intolerant,” [Amy] Ellenbogen said. “Media and the arts are powerful tools in our efforts.””
