What draws youth to gang life and how we draw them out of the life?
Continuing last week's conversation on acts of community violence like the shooting of six Jefferson High School students, Jo Ann and Dave look at what draws youth into the gang life and keeps them there despite the risks and consequences?

Joining Dave and Jo Ann in this conversation will be former gang member and current gang outreach worker Pernell Brown and Dr. Clayborn Collins, executive director of Emmanuel Community Services.
