Law Day 2009
This past Friday, Bronx Community Solutions hosted about 150 seventh graders from the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice for a Law Day event on choices and consequences related to drunk driving. The event started out with a presentation by Joe Mccormack (the bureau chief in the DA's vehicular crimes unit). Then the students participated in a "think before you drive" exercise with a theater group, which had the youth discuss scenarios like whether to get in a car with an older brother or friend, which they got really into. After the 7th graders finished their visit we hosted a similar program for about 200 high schoolers from three local schools and the public. In addition to the activities that we did with the seventh graders, Joe led a panel discussion with two police officers and a judge.
