Why Stopping Violence in Chicago is a Collective Effort

In Chicago, a city highly characterised by gang activity, there are incidents of gun violence every day.

The article focuses on the social commitments made by the different individuals and organisations who participated and highlights the importance of gatherings such as those organised by the GDL in order to connect and exchange experiences and ideas.

If you want to learn more about important personalities working in the field of violence prevention in Chicago as well as Julia Jaroschewski's reflections on the GDL Lab, you can read the whole article here.
