California Teens Make Video to Respond to Newtown Tragedy
In a 60-second video 33 California young people say more guns are not the answer to keeping schools safe. "Don't lock down our schools," said one teenager in the video. "A solid plan doesn't begin and end with who has access to guns and how many police officers we have," said David Valdez, Director of the Youth Institute at the Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA, who helped coordinate production of the video.

Violence prevention: the evidence
Excellent resources from the World Health Organization. An eight-part series of briefings on the evidence of interventions to prevent violence. Clear directions for how violence prevention funders, policy makers and program implementers can boost the impact of their violence prevention efforts.
