"What so many of these kids need more than anything is someone to be able to talk to them, talk to them, talk to them and then when there is a crisis, and there will be many, to be able to talk them through it."

--Katie Davis



Katie Davis - journalist, mentor, conflict mediator, gardener, camp counselor, community activist - has lived most of her life in the Adams Morgan section of Washington, DC where she has undertaken a one woman campaign to save kids in her inner city neighborhood. Young people there who have too many unstructured hours and too few good role models are vulnerable to gangs, weapons, alcohol, and drugs. These factors motivated this former All Things Considered host to found the Urban Rangers program for inner city kids in DC.
