        Women Peacemakers: The Interrupters

        In an effort to stop the cycle of retaliatory violence that plagues the streets of Chicago, former gang members and ex-convicts known as "violence interrupters" work with an organization called CeaseFire, using their street credibility to stop shootings before they happen. In this lesson, students will contemplate the realities of violence, its devastating impact on communities, and the capacity of "violence interrupters" to break the cycle of violence.
