April 21, 2010 – Hour 2

We continued our discussion about Safe Streets, a program designed to reduce violence in Baltimore City whose funding was recently suspended after allegations that some workers in the program were still affiliated with gangs in Baltimore. We are joined by Corey Winfield, Outreach Supervisor for Safe Streets East. Winfield tells us about the death of his brother, how he traded in violence and found an alternative, and what the Safe Streets program does for youth in Baltimore.

If you would like to contact Mayor Rawlings-Blake to voice your support for Safe Streets, you can use the following information:

    Corey Winfield and his team should be applauded for the work that they do.
    I hope that the city continue the Safe Street Program. To the city officals, do not punish everyone for one person mistakes.
