“Treating the contagion of violence.” – CeaseFire
Last night, CeaseFire staff member Anthony Doss came to CCO to hold a discussion with 11- 17 year-olds and their parents. Anthony listened to the teens and gave them tools to interrupt the violence that they experience on the street.
CCO staff member, Mary Davenport, organized the event and felt that the conversation was fun, honest and helpful. CCO is privileged to work with an agency that has been so effective in the non-violent movement. CeaseFire will be returning to CCO soon to meet with more residents. Thank you, Anthony and CeaseFire Chicago!
