“Violence interrupter” Ameena Matthews, featured in the upcoming, award-winning documentary “The Interrupters,” talked with Stephen Colbert, host of the Colbert Report, during last night’s episode.

The documentary, which airs Feb. 14 on PBS’s Frontline, highlights the violence prevention work of CeaseFire, a Chicago-based group that uses a public health model to stop shootings and killings. CeaseFire, along with APHA and other organizations, are partners of UNITY, a violence prevention initiative of the Prevention Institute funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
