Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, joined by the former Mayor David N. Dinkins, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the New York Junior Tennis League, hosted more than 650 Far Rockaway public school students at the annual "Say Yes to Tennis, No to Violence" Day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows- Corona Park in Queens.

Students from Far Rockaway High School, MS 53, PS 42, PS 43, PS 104, PS 106, PS 197, PS 215, and PS 333 participated in the District Attorney's STAR (Straight Talk About Risks) Track anti-violence program.

The program, created ten years ago, sends dozens of Assistant District Attorneys and other staffers into school to teach children about the risks of drugs and guns in partnership with educators and parents.
