Participants and staff from Youth Peace Center (YPC), in the Roseland community in Chicago, accompanied Arne Duncan to Washington, D.C. where they spoke about the need for a national solution to gun violence. They were there as a part of the 24-7 People’s Filibuster for Gun Safety where more than 72 speakers spoke about the need for Congress to act. Listen to Arne Duncan and Leslie Welch, Program Supervisor at YPC. They hope that their voices will stop the talking, thinking, and praying and lead to actual action on the part of Congress.
