Last Tuesday the Mediation Center joined many other local organizations as part of National Night Out in Brower Park. Staff members and volunteers painted kids' faces and passed out popsicles. The events' organizers and other participating groups brought ponies for kids to ride on, a group of drummers and dancers, bouncey castles, prize giveaways, free medical screening and information, and other resources for community residents. Music and food rounded out the day, and hundred of neighbors in Crown Heights came out to enjoy the beautiful weather, take part in the festivities, and take a stand against crime. The Mediation Center was proud to contribute to such a strong, fun display of community unity and anti-violence activism.
