On the Fourth of July, seven people were killed and dozens more were injured in a mass shooting in suburban Highland Park. About 35 miles south, another mass shooting injured five people in Parkway Gardens in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood.
Reset discusses how both instances play into the larger issue of gun violence in the Chicago region, and how restorative justice and community-based support can help prevent this kind of violence.
