Chicago’s original gang violence intervention agency. Now in your earbuds.

Too many young kids are losing their lives to gun violence–and that needs to stop. With guests ranging from US Sen Dick Durbin and Chicago Bears legend Charles Tillman, to ex gang members and prisoners-turned-community organizers, BUILD Radio is a megaphone for BUILD Chicago, a nonprofit trailblazer in gang intervention, violence prevention and youth development. From meaningful interviews and inspiring stories, to youth written songs, poems, and spoken word pieces, BUILD Radio is a podcast for listeners looking to support a life-line in some of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods.
