Our Place in the Community
MJE’s approach is innovative; we counter violence with a focus on changing internal expectations and perceptions. We offer two areas of programming designed to support and inform each other: Education and Engagement. Engagement offers opportunities for involvement in civic action; Education teaches the tools of civic action. Combined these programs create and nurture new leaders. We collaborate with other service organizations, academics, and governmental agencies to explore opportunities for creative, effective actions and interventions. We leverage the combined experience and expertise of various sectors and the resolve of a committed community against the intransigence of urban violence.
