From Problem to Solution

The overarching theme of her complex work is to create an understanding. For the organization this means having a firm grasp on their subjects, the impact of broken families, poverty and a fractured education system on their lives (often attributed as the root of conflict). Ameena Matthews along with Cure Violence have cemented their understanding in these areas and have streamlined a proven approach to dissolve the violence that is keeping the Southside of Chicago alive.
