This webinar, Part 2 of the Community Violence Intervention (CVI) Webinar Series, focuses on place-based approaches to CVI.
The webinar includes presentations from and discussions among experts on how place-based approaches can reduce and prevent community violence and crime by enhancing and maintaining the physical characteristics of settings where people come together in order to foster social interaction, strengthen connectedness, and increase collective efficacy (e.g., shared trust among residents and willingness to intervene). Presenters highlight the importance of community engagement within place-based approaches and discuss how incorporating community revitalization efforts, such as increasing green spaces and addressing abandoned buildings can reduce and prevent community violence. The presentation also includes a discussion on the Biden Administration’s investments in CVI.
