State Health Officials Ring Alarm About Youth & Young Adult Homicide Rates


State health officials are trying to raise awareness about the alarming number of homicide deaths among Illinois teens and young adults.

 

A PSA campaign from the State Department of Public Health says homicide is the number two cause of death for Illinois residents ages 10 to 24.

 

The campaign is trying to send the message that youth violence is preventable… not inevitable.

 

Governor Pat Quinn addressed a Chicago church on the issue Sunday… he says houses of worship are an effective place to enlist the public in the fight against youth violence.
