Community groups demand action on a trauma center at University of Chicago

A group of activists is saying that without a trauma center at its medical center, the University of Chicago should not get to be home to the Obama Presidential Library. The group, called the Trauma Center Coalition, is holding protest rallies all week to demand the University open a trauma center able to treat victims of gunshot wounds. The action comes as the University of Chicago is preparing to submit its bid to host the Obama Presidential Library. We talk with one of the protesters about their efforts.
