Transit Advocates Encourage Pedestrian Routes To Combat Safety

The community of Bronzeville has boomed in the last few years with many dubbing it Chicago's 'black metropolis.' But with a growing neighborhood comes concerns over safety. One transit advocate, Ronnie Matthew Harris, and his team at GoBronzeville are encouraging biking, public transit, and walking as a way to combat those concerns plus enhance the neighborhood.
