While gun violence garners significant attention, media coverage tends to focus on mass and high-profile shootings. Too often ignored is the lived experience of communities of color and the day-to-day violence they experience, as well as the solutions they have generated to promote safety and healing. This workshop will center the conversation of gun violence and violence prevention on the community-level, and will include topics such as: the root causes of violence; the intersectionality of gun violence; trauma-informed and public health responses; emerging local intervention and prevention strategies; and the County’s Office of Violence Prevention.
