Community Safety Realized: Public Health Pathways to Preventing Violence
Public health strategies for preventing violence are achievable and necessary for all of us to flourish. Informed by the science and practice of public health and driven by the values of equity and justice, Community Safety Realized: Public Health Pathways to Preventing Violence, describes a community-driven, multi-sector approach to preventing violence, with a focus on community violence.
Together with Prevention Institute, and with input from our members and other leaders, we developed a report and framework to help guide violence prevention policies and practices in your community.
