After Adam Toledo was shot and killed by Chicago Police, some city officials painted a picture of the 13 year old as lost, alone, and drawn to gang life out of desperation. Toledo’s mother pushed backed on that narrative, saying Adam lived with his family and was not alone. But the police shooting has created a narrow view of Toledo's Southwest Side neighborhood. We visit Little Village with Katya Nuques, executive director of Enlace Chicago, to learn more about the neighborhood’s history and discuss how the community is responding to the shooting.
