Violence Prevention Ideas

Violence Prevention Ideas October 6, 2014

There are plenty of big, long-term ideas and big differences of opinion about how to make our society a safer one. But what about the short term? Are there steps that can be taken right now -- by police, by churches, by government, by you to stop violence? Monday morning on The Sound of Ideas, we need to hear from you as our panel discusses taking action to bring safety to the streets. Join host Mike McIntyre, right here on 90.3.

Join the conversation, right here on 90.3.

The fight against breast cancer is an all-out offensive and the growing number of survivors -- it's very likely that you know one -- shows the immense progress that has been made.
