Speaking Out Against Violence

As part of National Victim Rights week, the State House is hosting a special conference today to highlight calls for a coordinated response to violence.

There's also a related art exhibit there: a multimedia project called "Violence Transformed." According to the community organizers, the idea is to confront violence with art.

A group of young poets is taking part, with a performance today. Reporter Andrea Smardon dropped in on their final rehearsals.

This program aired on April 26, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
