Last night, Thursday, December 12th, 15 Crown Heights neighbors braved the freezing weather to gather at Launch Charter School on 1580 Dean Street for a third session of S.O.S. Community Conversations.
|Participants looked at a variety of issues related to violence|
Participants looked at a number of sub-issues that affect and are affected by gun violence, which had been identified during previous conversations. They then selected
violence-related issues to work on in small issue groups. The two groups decided to focus on housing and youth development and support.
|The housing group meets to discuss their issue|
|The youth development group reports back to the circle about their plans|
At the close of the conversation, everyone was encouraged to send their reactions, opinions, criticisms, advice and suggestions about Community Conversations to us by email at email@example.com. Stay tuned for information about our next Community Conversation in the new year, and how to become involved in organizing for change.
