The event is co-sponsored by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and council members Gale Brewer, Jessica Lappin, and Melissa Mark Viverito.
The class is open to anyone above the age of 13, including seniors, and will be conducted by instructors from the Center For Anti-Violence Education.
Sunday, October 7th
2:00 – 4:00 pm
North Meadow Recreation Center, Central Park (mid-park, at 97th Street)
You can RSVP by phone (212-788-6871) or e-mail: email@example.com
