Tuesday evening November 25th, participants from all Mediation Center programs, including S.O.S., YO S.O.S., and Make It Happen gathered to remember our gratitude and feast on pies. Pies were fresh baked by staff and community members and also donated by our neighbors at Fine Fare Supermarket as well as Momofuku Milk Bar in Williamsburg. Pies included pumpkin, pecan sweet potato, apple, squash, and coconut.
There was also a photo booth staffed by volunteer photographer Brittany Buongiorno with decorations donated by Mimosa Floral Design on Kingston Ave. The interactive photo booth gave community members, volunteers, and staff an opportunity to recall why we stand against violence and what tactics we can use to peacefully resolve interpersonal conflicts. An evening of food, connection, and games helped us remember that we have a lot to be thankful for in Crown Heights!
