Juarez children: witnesses of violence, future of peace

Democracynow! interviews independent journalist Jean Friedman-Rudovsky, who journeyed to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico to investigate the impact of extreme violence on children. Her reports from the ground were published in Village Voice media: "Juarez children: Drugs, death, and fear."
Jean Friedman-Rudovsky witnessed immense suffering by children and their families who had experienced the violence first hand, but she also felt great hope from the people of Juarez, directed at their children. Locals are focusing peace efforts in bettering the lives of their children through giving them good daycare, education, extracurricular activities and overall emotional support.
