Brooklyn Justice Corps

DYL140129NYCJCBROOKLYN013

A new program, serving the communities of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Bushwick, Crown Heights, and East New York, opened in November 2014. The Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES) will operate the program. In addition to engaging young adults involved in the criminal justice system in community benefit projects and providing education services, internships, and job placement services, the Brooklyn Justice Corps will offer legal services through a partnership with Youth Represent, and will collaborate with the Theater of the Oppressed, giving Corps members the opportunity to create interactive performances that draw on their real-life experiences of discrimination.
