To address the causes of violence, communities need to create robust and resilient networks of support so that violence becomes an unacceptable response to conflict. The Trenton Community Street Teams project is a community-based violence intervention initiative designed to train and develop community members to be able to deescalate and defuse potentially violent situations in their neighborhoods. Join this session to learn more about Isles and other organizations’ work on this important issue.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Trenton residents, advocates interested in community-based violence intervention, general public
This session is sponsored by Capital Health, as part of the NJM's Safe and Sustainable Cities Day.
