WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — Children in the District are exposed to more community violence than their peers across the country.
That’s according to a report published by the D.C. Policy Center.
“It’s heartbreaking and it’s definitely a call to action for us in this community,” said Jasmine Brann, who wrote the article “D.C. students are exposed to more community violence.”
“To act like it’s not happening, to act like watching the news from night to night, and seeing young lives being lost is acceptable, it’s not,” she said.
