Stories about kids, guns and how to stop the violence. Precious Lives, created by 371 Productions, is a 2-year, 100-part weekly radio series about gun violence and young people in the Milwaukee area. The series applies a public health lens to each story to help listeners understand the full scope of the problem: who are the victims and the shooters; how are the weapons obtained; and what can we change about the environment that contributes to violence in Milwaukee?

A volunteer in Milwaukee sets up the portal for the next conversation. The portal sits behind the COA Goldin Center, just next to Moody Park.

At the COA Goldin Center, there's now a portal that takes Milwaukeeans to Newark, New Jersey.

The portal is a gold shipping container equipped with high-speed, life-sized video conferencing. It uses technology to encourage intimate conversations with people across space.

Leaders here and in Newark are sharing experiences of, and trading solutions, to gun violence. An issue that weighs on both cities.
