In The Studio: Can Advance Peace Curb Gun Violence In Fresno?

Jun 28, 2019

Fresno is one step closer to adopting a new program that uses mentoring, behavioral therapy and life skills training to curb gun violence in the city. Council members voted last week to allocate $200,000 to fund Advance Peace. Now local leaders and Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer have 90 days to submit to the council a proposal detailing how the money will be used. Moderator Kathleen Schock talks to council members Miguel Arias and Gary Bredefeld as well as community organizer Aaron Foster about their takes on the program.
