Reducing Violence Without Police

Uptown Campus

Join the Violence Prevention Institute & Center for Youth Equity each month for a live, virtual discussion of current violence prevention research. Students, faculty, and community stakeholders are encouraged to attend.

With academic and lived experience experts, this journal club will examine the impact violence prevention research has on New Orleans and use existing research to further practice and theory in the city and beyond. Our discussions will center understanding experimental design, critiquing methods, and comprehending how conclusions were drawn.

We hope participants will use the experience of this journal club to start asking questions about who is being included at every stage of designing, implementing, and disseminating research.

Register here to receive the Zoom link for this session.

The November topic is "Reducing Violence Without Police." The two resources to read in advance of the journal club are included below:
