On the morning of May 5th, a 52-year-old black man was non-fatally shot at the corner of Kingston Avenue and St. Johns Place. The site of the shooting was very near the youth programs and Legal Hand offices of the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center. Because this shooting was especially close to the heart center of our work, a large group of 68 people gathered at the shooting response. The shooting response attendees included Moms Demand Action, Mediation Center staff and youth, press, and community residents. We are grateful to all those who continue to work towards building safer and healthier blocks for all.
