Today: a story about defusing conflict when emotions run high, from someone who's made it her life's work. We hear from Shneaqua Purvis, better known as Coco, the founder and C.E.O. of Both Sides of the Violence in Brooklyn, New York. After losing her sister to gun violence, Coco devoted her life to community safety. She tells us how she prevents and de-escalates a confrontation, and how anyone can handle, or move past, a conflict without feeling like they're ignoring something important about themselves. Plus, we hear Coco’s own surprising story of forgiveness.
