Gun Violence

Violence can rip apart families and neighborhoods in devastating ways. In recent years, the most promising responses call on community leaders and service organizations to work with law enforcement and criminal justice entities on prevention and intervention. This often includes clear communication from the community to offenders that the shooting must stop, and that the community wants to welcome them back into civic life if they will cease doing harm. The following resources address these strategies and their link to community revitalization efforts.
