Yeshiva University’s Wurzweiler Care Café hosted a panel discussion and presentation for community members about gang violence and prevention on Monday, April 1 at Mount Carmel Church.

The program, ‘Rewriting your Story: Alternatives to Gang Violence,’ is among a series of events created since the tragic murder of 15-year-old Bronx resident Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz last summer.

Mount Carmel Teen Project, a community-based alternatives to violence program for teens and their families, hosted the Care Café.
