  • Incorporating Community Voices on Gun Violence

    People raise over 750 wooden crosses which are dedicated to lives lost in 2016 in Chicago during a peace march on December 31, 2016.

    Our research seeks to understand gun violence’s far-reaching impacts while ensuring that personal experience is a central component of our research. Including people who have firsthand experience with gun violence ensures that their perspectives, needs, and resiliency are highlighted and employed in the development of solutions.

    We have engaged communities to develop effective responses to gun violence, helped tell the stories of those most affected, and interviewed business leaders, civic organizations, and community stakeholders to document the damaging impact of gun violence on their lives and communities.
