Pix11 News’ Monica Morales visits SAVE East Harlem for a day to learn about their work on the ground and their Junior Violence Interrupters program. The goal? To prevent violence before it happens.
For the past few weeks, PIX11 has been focused on reform inside Riker’s Island, looking at the violence and corruption plaguing the jail. Caught in the middle are inmates, many of whom want to turn their lives around once they get out. Yet, in so many cases, they simply do not know how and many end up back on a path of crime, back inside Rikers.
