On June 18-19, the National Network for Safe Communities held its 2019 National Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration in New York City at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The success of the conference was a joint effort that was made possible by the participation of our invited speakers and attendees, as well as our generous sponsors.
The theme of this year’s conference was “The Emerging Science of Violence Prevention” and there were two major takeaways from the conference that are important to the work of NNSC going forward and that are important for the field. One is that there is now a nascent science and practice of violence prevention. The second is that what we now know empirically about violence, and “dangerous” communities, should lead to a fundamental resetting of how we think about, talk about, and engage with such communities.
This webpage captures much of the discussion around these ideas and other exciting work. We invite you to share, post, tweet and continue to engage with the enriching content developed during the NNSC’s 2019 National Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration.
We are grateful to everyone who joined us and to our supporters. Onward and upward!
