Something is Wrong: Exploring the Roots of Youth Violence by Project NIA, the Chicago Freedom School and Teachers for Social Justice

http://www.teachersforjustice.org/2010/02/curriculum-something-is-wrong-exploring.html

Project NIA, the Chicago Freedom School and Teachers for Social Justice have partnered along with other volunteers to develop a curriculum guide in order to contribute to the ongoing efforts by young people and their adult allies to analyze the root causes of youth violence and to create local solutions. At a time when frustration is running high and many are expressing a sense of powerlessness in the face of pervasive violence, this curriculum guide is an offering intended to make a positive contribution to the dialogue about violence in the lives of young people.
