Many kids growing up in poverty face high levels of crime and violence. What impact does this have on their mental, emotional, and psychological development? Why is it so difficult to break the cycle of violence in communities and are there programs that really work?

Michigan Radio is partnering with the Detroit Free Press for this special Issues & Ale discussion, hosted by Michigan Radio's Jenn White.

Panelists will include:

- Erik Howard, founder of Detroit’s The Alley Project

- Jim Henry from Western Michigan University’s Children's Trauma Assessment Center

- Carl Taylor, a nationally prominent urban scholar  and sociology professor at Michigan State University.  

Stop by, have a drink, and join in the discussion. Free Admission.
