Newsviews: Chicago Urban League

CHICAGO (WLS) -- When Shari Runner was named the president and CEO of the Chicago Urban League, she acknowledged that this comes during a time of turmoil.

The Urban League has been around for nearly a century working to help people find jobs, affordable housing, educational opportunities and more.

Runner joins us this week on Newsviews to talk more about these issues.
