Put an end to gun violence today!
Save Our Streets (S.O.S.) capitalizes on the credibility of local residents who have been on both sides of a gun and works to change the thinking and behavior of people who might be involved in a violent incident. Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets (Y.O. S.O.S.) helps mobilize the neighborhood against violence by building leadership among local teens. Both programs are part of the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center, a community based project working to create safer and healthier neighborhoods.
Youth Organizers lead presentations in their schools and in the community on forms of violence, post-traumatic stress disorder, and conflict escalation and deescalation, and share their personal stories of being impacted by gun violence. They are now gearing up for the 4th annual Arts to End Violence Festival and need your help to make it a success!
