Group serves as oasis of community, learning and peace in Austin neighborhood

For the gang and violence-ridden west side neighborhood of Austin, protecting our youth can be especially challenging. Organizations like the Peace Corner Youth Center are providing not only a safe space, but an opportunity for learning and community development. PCYC Executive Director Duane Wilson explains what the group is doing to keep kids safe, and responds to the media's coverage of violence in Chicago. Photo: courtesy of Peace Corner Youth Center
