Past campaign work of Nyame-Nti Cultural Healing Arts Therapy (N-CHAT) with youth residents of the Woodbourne Center have led to the formation of the Woodbourne Love & Forgiveness Drummers performing group. (Check out one of their recent performances. Click on Your News #18 and skip to 21:20). Their love & forgiveness conversations have become an integral part of their therapeutic practices with Woodbourne youth.
You can see each of our campaign partners' work highlighted on MPT and MPT2 in interstitial spots throughout our broadcast schedule this Winter/Spring. MPT is grateful to our partners for their important work in the community and for their collaboration throughout the campaign!
