A Couple Links

I thought these unrelated links would be of some interest to the Community Beat community:

* National syndicated columnist Neal Peirce of Washington Post Writers Group covered innovative methods to combat youth violence, with a nod toward Chicago's CeaseFire program. http://citiwire.net/post/1480/

* The MacArthur Foundation has posted a video of Adolfo Carrion, urban affairs director for the Obama White House, giving an address to LISC/Chicago's recent "Chicago Rising" gathering. http://www.macfound.org/site/c.lkLXJ8MQKrH/b.4284677/apps/s/content.asp?ct=7655857&utm_source=pubaff&utm_medium=email&utm_content=enews&utm_campaign=nov09_enews&tr=y&auid=5623653
