Nelson 'Carty' Ford Memorial Gallery Dedicated to #SocialActionArt

Activist Art by ARTivists is 'justice' work. It gives voice to the silenced, or marginalized, to better understand our collective humanity and the earth we share.

Parent Leadership Training Institute

In 2014, I was a part of the CFGNH Neighborhood Leadership Program.  My project was to deliver workshops with parents seeking Restorative Parenting tools.  It was an amazing cohort of leaders from throughout New Haven who were vision holders, each in their own way working to make New Haven a great place to live.  Many of us, and our fellow cohorts, are still committed to this work today.
