Connections: The Impact of Violence in Children

Children are impacted by violence in deep and long-lasting ways. A fresh look at the issue reveals that violence is a part of the lives of children across the spectrum: poverty and affluence, city and suburbs. How to change that? And what, exactly, do we know about the lives of children impacted by violence? Our panel in studio:

  • Dr. Jeff Kazarowski, president of The Children's Agenda
  • Sheree Toth, Director of the Mt. Hope Family Center and professor of psychology at the University of Rochester
  • Jerome Underwood, Rochester City School District community liaison
