Brad Lichtenstein, of 371 Productions, and Pierre Johnson, who is featured in a Precious Lives story, at a press conference.

Over the course of two years and 100 stories, Precious Lives will focus on gun violence and children in the Milwaukee area.

The series will examine the impact of suicides, accidental shootings and murder. It’s a project that seeks to reach as many people in the community as possible. And that goal is behind the broad collaboration at the heart of it.

Precious Lives is produced by Milwaukee’s 371 Productions, but will also bring in the work of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, radio stations WUWM 89.7 FM & WNOV 860 AM and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.
