About 2,000 copies were printed and distributed through a $2,500 grant from the National Center for Neighborhood Enterprise.A pdf file of the magazine can be found here.
The magazine ... includes interviews with police, anti-violence activists, families of homicide victims and a gun shop owner. The articles are accompanied by poems and artwork done by the youths.
The poems are filled with emotion, and the interviews contain pointed questions from youths in a city where 24 juveniles were homicide victims last year. "This project opened our eyes," the youths declared in the issue. "We hope it opened yours."
