Legal Aid Working with Community Partners
MONDAY, MAY 16, 2016

The Community Justice Unit joined with our community partner, Save Our Streets (S.O.S.) in Crown Heights, on Saturday, May 14th, for a street festival to raise awareness to ending gun violence and disparate policing. The Kingston Avenue festival offered local residents food, crafts, music and games all in support of a safer community. Our Community Justice team provided attendees with Know Your Rights information and legal advice in our Mobile Justice Unit, while engaging young people in a “Decorate your Legal Aid Hat and Bag” activity. It was a beautiful celebration of the great work S.O.S. Crown Heights is doing to reduce gun violence in Brooklyn and the Community Justice Unit’s partnership with an organization working to make New York City safer for everyone.
