Brownsville on the Move


The Brownsville Community Justice Center continues to gather momentum.  On Friday, the Brooklyn Community Foundation, one of our core funders, sent around an email blast highlighting the mural that we recently created in partnership with Groundswell and the NYC Department of Probation and others.  Next week, another one of our core funders -- the US Department of Justice -- will hold a press event in Brownsville to celebrate a new, national initiative that seeks to focus the energies of the justice system on innovative, place-based interventions.  Brooklyn District Attorney Joe Hynes will be one of the featured speakers and will talk about our join efforts to reduce gun crime in the neighborhood.
