CBS news hosts Chris Leary and NFL Hall of Famer Darrell Green speak to DJ Young about the work he’s doing to empower young adults to prevent youth violence across the country.

With the rash of violence rampant among our youth today in schools, throughout our neighborhoods, and social media platforms, 20-year old radio host, DJ Young Music, a 2015 high school honor graduate and the youngest DJ to have a syndicated radio mix show, has launched his “Streetz Blunt Truth Tour” under his non-profit organization Streetz Stop the Violence Foundation. The purpose of the tour is to partner with high schools and colleges to discuss the best practices for violence prevention among youth, while spreading peace, love and understanding through music. Young established the youth-centered organization starting in part as a response to the murder of his friend and up-and-coming DC rapper Douglas “Swipey” Brooks.
