The forums are an opportunity for community residents to have a voice. We'll talk about data about violence and its causes and some of the great work being done to address these issues. Most importantly, we want to hear from community residents, specifically:

  • How do community members think their communities should be viewed?
  • What do community members wish researchers would try to learn about violence?
  • How can we support community members to become equal partners in violence research?

Before and after the discussions, residents will be able to learn more about local organizations and their programs. Community organizations will have information about their programs, services, and volunteer opportunities available at our Community Resource Table.

Free child care and refreshments will be provided. Plus, participants who complete the evaluation will be entered to win one of five gifts cards (value $25-$100).

The Forums have concluded.
