For the past year, WGCI-FM/107.5 WGCI has been holding a series of periodic town hall-style meetings that discuss the ongoing gun violence problem in Chicago's urban neighborhoods. Tomorrow, WGCI-FM will host another of these open community meetings entitled "Street Talk: Stop The Bleeding."
The event, which is being co-hosted by BBF Family Services, will take place Tuesday from 5:00pm-7:00pm at Penn Elementary School, located at 1616 S. Avers in Chicago.
WGCI-FM's town hall discussion will be heard live on the radio for an uninterrupted hour (5:00pm-6:00pm) and via Facebook Live and WGCI.com for a second hour (6:00pm-7:00pm).
Serving as moderators for the two hours will be Kyle Santillian, Kendra G, and Leon Rogers -- WGCI-FM's hosts of the "Chicago Morning Takeover."
Scheduled to be panelists at the "Street Talk: Stop The Bleeding" meeting will be:
- Aleta Clark, activist and founder of Hugs No Slugs

- Dr. Kimberly Lewis, Program Director of the Primo Center for Women and Children
- Mellanie Washington, mother of 11-year-old survivor of gun violence Tavon Tanner
