The truth is within the people as should the power re: Wilmington’s The People’s Report

Wilmington, Delaware is one of the most violent cities, per capita, in the nation. In 2010 a group of researchers, recruited from the streets of the city, sought to find out why. The People’s Report is an ethnographic community needs assessment of two of Wilmington’s oldest and most violent neighborhoods: Eastside and Southbridge. The study organized fifteen community residents from these neighborhoods who have experience in the streets and/or criminal justice system as participatory action researchers (PAR), to empirically document the impact of community violence.
