Lots of things have been going on at the Mediation Center during the first full week of October!

Here are a few highlights:

  • Project Director Amy Ellenbogen enjoyed the holiday of Sukkot with Governor Paterson, Senator Eric Adams, Council Member John Liu and Council Member Letitia James at the Jewish Children’s Museum on Eastern Parkway. Click here for Senator Eric Adams’ press release.
  • Lawyers from Legal Aid came to the Mediation Center this week for our monthly immigration clinic, and assisted seventeen people with their immigration status.
  • Program Associate Eleanor Anderson launched fall recruitment for the Greenpoint Youth Court, and met with students and leaders at area schools to recruit for this program. Applications are due Tuesday, October 13. For more information or an application, email eanderson@crownheights.org or call 646-460-1764.
  • The Mediation Center met with People’s Production House, an organization that emphasizes media and media skills in its pursuit of social change.
  • This was also the first full week of work for our new Americorps members. We welcome them warmly to the Mediation Center as they get to know their way around the office!
