On Sunday we had an amazing kick-off to our #Beam15 festivities. We are grateful for the 125+ Beamers from across our programs who joined us to reconnect and put themselves on the Beam Timeline. If you couldn't make it, there are plenty of ways to stay connected and help us grow! We are all part of Beam, past, present, future.

Going Towards the Heat: Speaking Across Difference, June 10
We are so excited to showcase our restorative justice and community-building work through the seminar, Going Towards the Heat: Speaking Across Difference, on June 10 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Theresa Lang Community and Student Center (55 West 13th Street)! New York Peace Institute was invited by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School to partner on a year-long public seminar series dedicated to Freedom of Speech. The sixth of these seminars, Going Towards the Heat, will be led by New York Peace Institute Circle Keepers, who will guide participants in a community-building circle practice where each circle will examine a facet of the theme, Freedom of Speech. This event, which will be a fantastic opportunity to participate in and observe the use of circles to discuss a difficult and timely topic, is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly suggested and you can register here.

Register for the 2nd Annual KCTL Doubles Open
Dear KCTL Supporters
I'm excited to announce that we have a date for our 2nd KCTL Annual Tennis Fundraiser! The tournament this year will be held on Saturday, March 30th, from 6pm-9pm. We will once again be using the courts at McCarren Tennis Center. The tournament will be catered and the weekend date this year allows more potential for celebrations to follow the event!
Last year was a huge success with some great matches throughout the evening. The format will again mean that everyone gets plenty of time on the court and opportunities to contribute to your overall team scores. Our KCTL students will help draw the teams (consisting of 4 players) on the evening, with each team balanced based on the ratings you provide.
This year our target is to raise $15,000 which will go directly to expanding programming to our 6th site in 2019, Ingersoll Houses. We are currently running a Winter Program at Ingersoll Houses with over 35 students and we intend to provide these children, and many more, free tennis and life-skills programming throughout the year and beyond. Please help us reach our goal and expand our programming to over 200 children in 2019!
If you would like to enter then please click the button or flyer below. You can always reach out to me directly at email@example.com if you need more information.
To raise money for the event, you can do so using Crowdrise here: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/kctls-2nd-annual-doubles-open
Looking forward to another great night of tennis!
Dave Webley, Executive Director
