Beyond Bullets: Combating Gun Violence in NYC Schools (VIDEO)
Beyond Bullets is a media campaign by DCTV. The goal is to encourage nationwide discussion about gun violence and, ultimately, get more people involved in the effort to reduce the violence. The program reaches kids by the power of video and storytelling.
In this clip, the group visits the Bronx’s Kelly High School in Hunts Point — part of one of the poorest congressional districts in the nation. Beyond Bullets moderator, Ronald Merritt, is a former gang member. He tells students that if he can reform, they can reform.
