Dear << Test First Name >>,

In the last year, CVG has partnered with over half a dozen new cities. In fact, we have just begun implementing the model in San Antonio, TX and we are currently in the process of bringing the Cure Violence model to Minneapolis to help bring down community violence there. We've also received new demand for CVG expansion in cities with existing sites as well as from new cities. We look forward to growing the network and the movement in the coming months.

Department of Homeland Security adopts Public Health Approach

CVG welcomes the announcement on May 19 by the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, that the DHS will be replacing its existing Office of Targeted Violence and Violence Prevention with a new organization,  the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3).  The new center will use a public health approach to combat domestic terrorism and targeted violence. Secretary Mayorkas says this transition to a health approach will create a "new and more stable structure for moving our [DHS] local prevention mission forward."   You can read the full press release here. 

The Media’s Role in Stopping the Spread of Violence

On April 12, Cure Violence Global, in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Arizona (JCRC) and Arizona State University’s Public Safety Innovation Lab, ran a virtual training for journalists in Phoenix on best practices for covering the April 17 rally by the National Socialist Movement Rally. The goal of the training was to help the media understand how to cover a potential event by an extremist group without increasing the risks for violence and without inadvertently helping to spread the extremist ideology. Dr. Gary Slutkin shared with participants the main principles of CVG’s health approach to treating violence and discussed the media’s role in stopping the spread. You can read more about them here. Those who are interested can take the training online, by visiting CVG’s training webpage

Violence in Childhood: Impact of Exposure to Violence in Early and Late Adolescence

In this blog post, the latest in CVG’s series on violence in childhood, Dr. Susan Bissell and Mohammed Alshurafa discuss how violence affects the brain of children in early and late adolescence. They explain how the context and type of violence a child is likely to experience can vary depending on their gender, gender identity, ethnicity, class, disability status, sexuality, and socioeconomic background. 

We also hope to see you all on June 2 for CVG's Virtual Gala! 

With an abundance of gratitude,

The Entire Team at Cure Violence Global
