Empowering young people to end Chicago’s gun violence problem

Members from the Chicago CRED organization speak on a panel at the Brookings Institution.

Former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sits down with young men from Chicago CRED (Creating Real Economic Diversity) to discuss the steps they have taken to disrupt the cycle of gun violence in their community and transition into the legal economy.
