I recently watched a film called the Interrupters and fell in love with Ameena, Cobe and Tio and the whole team over there in Chicago. This film and its array of inspired characters are so amazing they show you how early and direct intervention on the streets can make a meaningful difference to the lives of young people. The injustices of criminal justice policy and policing often  work covertly to maintain a status quo and we all  need to be aware of this.

Rather than wait for policy, governments or leaders to change and understand the plight of our young, we must develop our own direct solutions just like the Interruptors have done. Why not check them out and leave a comment http://interrupters.kartemquin.com
