Project Milwaukee: Youth Violence
Spring of 2008, Lake Effect and WUWM News journalists teamed up to examine the deep roots of youth violence in Milwaukee, along with possible solutions.
From May 29 to June 6, 2008, WUWM explored youth violence through more than 30 radio reports and a community forum. These reports introduced listeners to children who live with violence, as well as those who are perpetrators of violent crimes. WUWM also looked at the economics of violence, and how it affects the entire community. The stories and interviews featured both the causes and the solutions to the problem.
