Chicago Urban League forum on Youth Employment and Violence Issues

Rep. Wheeler with Everett Sprags,
aspiring entrepreneur.

State Rep. Keith Wheeler (R-Oswego) participated in a discussion at the Chicago Urban League on Monday on the link between joblessness and violence. Policymakers at the state and local levels need to work together in partnership with community leaders and law enforcement to reduce the violence in Chicago and to provide greater economic opportunity for urban youth and families.

The Chicago Urban League hosted this panel discussion on "Youth Employment / Joblessness / Violence Issues and Solutions" to bring business leaders together with youth and young adults interested in finding solutions to these challenges together.
