'We Are Making the City Safer'

It often feels like addressing the plague of gun violence is a hopeless effort, yet community violence intervention, or CVI, where trained interventionists reach out directly to connect with those most at risk for perpetuating the cycle of gun violence, points to a path forward.

On December 15, the Center for Neighborhood Engaged Research & Science (Corners), housed at Northwestern's Institute for Policy Research, hosted their second annual symposium on CVI research and practice. It highlighted the ways CVI workers are making the city safer, but also detailed new research showing the physical and mental toll of street outreach work.
