The Red Hook Community Justice Center welcomed a very exciting visitor today, New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery.
Judge Alex Calabrese thanked the senator for her support and spoke about how the mural is a permanent reminder of Red Hook’s mission. The word, transform, appears front and center in the mural, while also playing a key role in the justice system. Judge Calabrese remarked that transformation is a critical step for getting back on track after involvement with the court. The Justice Center recognizes people’s ability to transform by connecting them to the resources and tools they need to do so.
We are thrilled to be able to share our new mural with Senator Montgomery and we thank her for taking the time to come see the work we do here in Red Hook!
