Chicago Ceasefire: a successful programme using viral change techniques

What’s it like to live in a neighborhood where practically everyone has witnessed a shooting or
lost a loved one to violence? Is there a way to stop the senseless violence that robs innocent children of their future? CeaseFire believes there is. And we’ve gotten results in some of the toughest neighborhoods. Watch “The Interrupters” on Frontline on public television on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 9 p.m. EST/ 8 p.m. CST: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/interrupters/
