Red Hook Community Justice Center

Red Hook Community Justice Center Launched in June 2000, the Red Hook Community Justice Center is the nation's first multi-jurisdictional community court. See https://linktr.ee/RedHookJustice for information about open positions, program recruitment, upcoming events, and much more

Operating out of a refurbished Catholic school in the heart of a geographically and socially isolated neighborhood in southwest Brooklyn, the Justice Center seeks to solve neighborhood problems using a coordinated response. At Red Hook, a single judge hears neighborhood cases from three police precincts (covering approximately 200,000 people) that under ordinary circumstances would go to three different courts—Civil, Family, and Criminal.

The Intake Specialist is primarily responsible for conducting intake screenings, scheduling clients for community service and social services, monitoring and reporting on compliance for court purposes, and facilitating a range of group-based interventions.

Yesterday was an ugly day for America. The insurrection—incited by President Trump with lies and his refusal to accept the results of a democratic election—was a vile rebuke to truth, equity, and democracy. We are sickened by the blatant racism on display in the symbols carried by rioters and in the permissive police response. That the mob was able to storm the Capitol with minimal resistance or consequences stands in sharp contrast to the way police have responded to Black Lives Matter protests across the country, including nearby in Washington, D.C.'s, Lafayette Square.

At the Center for Court Innovation, we believe institutions matter and governments can change for the better. Yesterday's horrifying events prove that change is coming too slowly. We stand with those who demand a system that safeguards democracy and the rights of all Americans, including Black and brown citizens and those of all races and backgrounds, to vote. We will continue to work to excise white supremacy and racism from our justice, law enforcement, and legal systems. We must ensure our nation lives up to its promises of fairness and racial justice.
