Last month the Mediation Center hosted a meeting of the current We Are All Brooklyn (WAAB) Fellowship, a leadership training program for young professionals who work at community organizations and social service agencies in Brooklyn. The group spent the morning learning about Crown Heights and heard from Richard Green (Crown Heights Youth Collective), Pastor Ken Bogan (Greater Restoration Baptist Church), Amy Ellenbogen (CHCMC), and Devorah Halberstam, who spoke about losing her son to a terrorist attack in Brooklyn and how she became involved in activism thereafter.

Devorah Halberstam tells her story to the group.
