“My brother was on his way home, robbed and shot several times, and within 12 hours his life was gone. A 21-year-old committed the crime, he had just been let out three months earlier on good time. It seems like the youth have more access to a gun than a job.”
On Wednesday, June 15th Precious Lives hosted a live performance at the Pabst Theater. Those affected by gun violence - high schoolers, community organizers, youth mentors - shared their stories live. Here is a clip from the show.
