O20150128_101814n Wed, Jan 28th, The Mediation Center hosted a group of 13 guests from the Coro Leadership program as part of their “Issue Day” initiative. Visitors were exploring the ways in which community agencies are addressing crime and violence, and spoke with members of the Mediation Center to learn more about our unique approach.

The day began with a presentation and walking tour led by S.O.S. Crown Heights Outreach Worker, David Gaskin. Next, visitors rotated through three interviews stations, speaking with Rev Jones of S.O.S. CAN, S.O.S. Crown Heights Program Manager Allen James, and Heather Day as well as program alum Victoria Renna on behalf of YO S.O.S.

We enjoyed speaking with these guests and appreciate their support and interest in our violence reduction and community building efforts!
