Ka Joog Confronts Recruitment Assumptions

The Cedar Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis has seen more than a few national and international journalists this week – all of them drawn to the area to explore any possible connections between the terrorist attack in Kenya and the local Somali community. 

Representatives from Ka Joog, a local non-profit dedicated to the enrichment of Somali youth,  gathered at the Southern Theater to discuss their work, and to address concerns about  potential recruitment of  young people by extremist groups.

KFAI’s Maggie Kane was there, and has a report.
