ANTI-VIOLENCE DEVELOPMENT



Cure Violence ENY/ Real People Do Real Things

Cure Violence ENY  focuses  on several "hot spots" or target areas within the 75th Precinct in East New York, Brooklyn.  A public health statistically proven data driven approach is used to reduce gun related shootings and killings by providing immediate services to those who are considered high risk. Hired credible messengers known as outreach workers and violence interrupters are deployed to targeted areas throughout East New York to mediate, talk, and listen; the emphasis is on preventative measures as opposed to punishment measures.  The issue is approached as a health epidemic and therefore a full- fledged multimedia public education campaign is used to reach the target population and the surrounding neighborhoods..
