Photo of the Week


One of my favorite parts of the Center for Court Innovation's website is the Photo of the Week feature.  Each week, thanks to our ace communications team, we feature an image that highlights something interesting that happened either at the Center or, more frequently, at one of our demonstration projects. (The shot above, the latest entry, comes from the Gracie Mansion award ceremony for the NYC Innovative Nonprofit Awards.)

Quite often, the images are strikingly beautiful, like this shot of an anti-violence march that the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center organized in Brooklyn:


Sometimes, the images are inspirational, like this photo of the Red Hook Community Justice Center raising its banner and returning to business as usual following the destruction of Superstorm Sandy: 


And sometimes the photos document key strategic partnerships or the culmination of successful projects, like this shot from Brownsville, where we unveiled a giant mural with the help of New York City Probation Commission Vinny Schiraldi, the arts organization Groundswell, and other partners: 


The archive goes back to April 2012 and features photographs from many (although not all) of our demonstration projects.  Stay tuned for more in the weeks to come.
