Combating Gang Violence

Gangs are a problem in Greater Cleveland, from St. Clair to the suburbs. When it comes to fighting them, some say the problem is best handled from the ground up - in churches, say, or even the boxing ring. Cleveland is one of just six cities across the country receiving federal dollars to combat gang violence. Wednesday morning on The Sound of Ideas we'll look at where that money is going and the effect it's having. We'll talk solutions with U.S. Attorney Greg White and other community leaders. You're invited to join the conversation. It starts at nine, on 90.3.


Jamie Blackson Baker, executive director, St. Clair-Superior Neighborhood Development Corporation; Mike Walker, executive director, Partnership for a Safer Cleveland; Mike Polensek, Cleveland City Council, Ward 11; U.S. Attorney Greg White; Mike Zimmerman, Akron PD Gang Unit
