Join the dialogue… with guest speakers
Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Lewis-Mention and Dr. Arthur Romano professor of conflict resolution and peace education at George Mason University.

Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Mention-Lewis began her legal career as a Nassau County Assistant District Attorney in 1993, prosecuting misdemeanors.  She later became an Assistant District Attorney in County Court where she prosecuted felony cases. When litigating an attempted murder case in 1999 that involved teenagers, Mention-Lewis realized that young people were in dire need of new, comprehensive intervention strategies.
In 2005 she was honored with her promotion to the position of Unit Chief of Rising Star where she focused on gang prevention strategies. In January 2013, Mention-Lewis was appointed by the Suffolk County Executive to the position of County Deputy Police Commissioner, making her not only the first female to hold the position, but also the first person of color. Her work entails creating comprehensive programs to combat gang violence and recidivism through intelligence lead policing, community-oriented policing and assisting to develop Council of Thought and Action groups across the county.

Dr. Arthur Romano, an international peace-educator, consultant, certified nonviolence trainer and a professor of conflict analysis and resolution at George Mason University.  Dr. Romano has implemented innovative educational programs in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe and the US. Those programs have supported thousands of students in learning practical strategies for building healthy communities, becoming global leaders and productively engaging with conflict.  Dr. Romano has spoken numerous times at the United Nations and has collaborated with the Department of Public Information to promote the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence and the International Day of Peace.

In Our Backyard

The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.

Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.

In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.

The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the CSJHU: (631) 451-4117.
