What a great piece of work, its done in a true light of everyday living in some of chicago's high risk communities .well deserved recognition to the violence Interrupters and their leadership in their commitment and dedication to our youth in their time of need.

Long overdue. This hits home and I'm I'm glad that you are putting this out. I'm a native Washintonian and I see, read, and hear about this everyday. Toooo many bodies and NO ONE cares to know who did it. Our Black babies are dying and as a mother of a 7 year old, something needs to be done and it starts at home. Thank you for this.
