#069 Precious Lives: Changing the System From Within
When a nine-year-old girl gets shot in the head while watching TV, where do we look for answers?
Do we expect the city government to offer solutions? Some people might not know that the City of Milwaukee has an Office of Violence Prevention or that they’re filling two new positions focused on engaging youth.
Reggie Moore is the new director of this Office. He says, “We don't need any more wake up calls. We need answers.”
But that the answers lie within the community, and it’s his job to help make them visible.
Moore welcomes community feedback and invites neighbors to contact the Office of Violence Prevention at 414-286-8553.
