Where: Red Hook Community Justice Center - 88 Visitation Place Brooklyn, NY 11231
The Red Hook Community Justice Center is recruiting people from Red Hook to be peacemakers using a traditional Native American way of practicing justice that focuses on healing rather than punishment. Peacemakers will go through a FREE training, which will include meeting with peacemakers from the Cayuga and Navajo Nation. Trained peacemakers will help young people to resolve conflicts, restore relationships, and prevent violence. Orientation: September 26th from 5pm-7pm at the Justice Center. Peacemakers that currently live in or around Red Hook’s NYCHA will receive a $175 stipend upon completion of the training. For more information, please contact the PeacemakingRH@gmail.com or (718) 923-8287 http://www.redhookjustice.org/
