Bronx youth stand up and speak out against violence
More than 100 community activists rallied against violence in the Bronx Saturday. Members of the Bronx Youth Empowerment Program marched from East Gun Hill Road to the Eastchester Community Center. Members say violence in the borough is getting worse every day and will continue that way unless people reach out to the youth.
