SOS Crown Heights Presents The Interrupters Friday at 6pm

As part of their Week of Peace, SOS Crown Heights is screening the award-winning documentary The Interrupters (trailer above) tomorrow night. From the same Chicago filmmakers who created the seminal documentary Hoop Dreams in the early 1990s, The Interrupters follows three "violence interrupters" from Chicago Ceasefire, whose public health approach to gun violence has proven remarkably effective at reducing the needless death and destruction caused by shooting (and serves as an international model, replicated in our neighborhood by SOS Crown Heights). 

The screening starts promptly at 6pm in the auditorium of PS 289 (900 St. Marks, at Kingston Ave), and will feature presentations from SOS Crown Heights violence interrupters after the film. More information can be found here.
