Join us Thursday at 2pm eastern/1pm CENTRAL as we share with teens on Blog Talk Radio. You can dial in at 646-716-6058 and ask questions about the topic or speak to some of the teens from the Frayser area.

Community violence includes many events. It might be a stranger using physical threat or direct violence to take something or hurt someone. It can also be violence between family members, close partners, or peers. These events may include cruel acts such as being shot, raped, stabbed, or beaten.

Most of the attention from media and research is on community violence that involves adults. However, many children and teens face violence in their neighborhoods and schools. Such violence can have effects on children.

How much community violence do children face?
