The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion will host Strate­gies to Reduce Gun Vio­lence: Part 2, a free, one-hour webi­nar on gun vio­lence reduc­tion strate­gies, with a focus on vio­lence inter­ven­tion and inter­rup­tion. The webi­nar is designed to help youth jus­tice prac­ti­tion­ers, com­mu­ni­ty ser­vice providers, local gov­ern­ment part­ners and law enforce­ment work­ers bet­ter under­stand their role in such ini­tia­tives. The ses­sion is a com­pan­ion to a 2023 webi­nar on gun vio­lence prevention.

This webi­nar is an abbre­vi­at­ed ver­sion of the Nation­al Insti­tute for Crim­i­nal Jus­tice Reform (NICJR) train­ing on build­ing a sus­tain­able strat­e­gy for gun vio­lence reduc­tion. In addi­tion to dis­cussing how to iden­ti­fy indi­vid­u­als at high risk for imme­di­ate involve­ment in gun vio­lence, pre­sen­ters will share near-term inter­ven­tions for reduc­ing gun vio­lence, including:

  • life coach­ing;
  • street out­reach; and 
  • effec­tive mes­sag­ing and engagement.

NICJR will be joined by YouthALIVE!, a non­prof­it direct ser­vice provider in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia, that works with youth and young adults who are involved in gun violence.

All reg­is­trants will receive a link to a record­ing of the webinar.
