Youth on Youth Violence The approach to tackling youth violence in Northeast Ohio involves not just police and the courts, but a broad network of organizations that focus on prevention and treatment. It views youth violence not just as a crime, but as a public health issue that affects everyone. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the damage caused by youth violence and discuss how investing in programs for youth can pay dividends -- and keep the peace -- as they reach their teens. Monday at 9.




Marilyn Rice, Fmr. Senior Advisor in Health Promotion and Urban Health, World Health Organization
Dr. Edward Barksdale, Surgeon, Rainbow Babies
Zack Reed, Cleveland City Councilman
Isaac Knowles, Victim of youth violence
Ron Soeder, President, Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland
Dan Flannery, Director, Begun Center, Case Western Reserve University
