The Brownsville Community Justice Center’s RISE project recently began its newest internship, the BCJC Street Team. The Street Team is comprised of young people that want to make positive changes in Brownsville, specifically to reduce community violence. They will learn about community violence and community healing, while designing community engagement projects on these topics. The street team will also represent the Justice Center at community and city wide events. On their first day of internship, the interns had a special appearance by our very own Project Director, James Brodick. The Street Team interns had some thoughtful and meaningful conversations with James about the needs of the community and the justice system as a whole.
