I AM PEACE 3-on-3 Youth Basketball tournament
In the summer of 2014, our local Crown Heights community endured numerous instances of gun violence. After a first-hand experience dodging bullets at Jackie Robinson Playground, we took action and created the I AM PEACE 3-on-3 Youth Basketball Tournament.
The tournament has gone on to become a pillar in our community, as we look forward to the 6th annual I AM PEACE Tournament on August 10, 2019.
