Chi-Raq: My Op/Ed in the Chicago Sun-Times

Last summer, I learned about the epidemic of violence in Chicago through the eyes of high schoolers through my work with the University of Chicago Medicine’s Summer Service Partnership. All three neighborhood teams chose to address violence for their community health service-learning projects.

You can read what I learned here, in an op/ed I published in the Chicago Sun-Times last night.

Hopelessness = violence = more hopelessness = more violence

Jobs break the cycle.
