Cure Violence Global Programs

Cure Violence has worked in over 25 US cities and more than 50 sites, in partnership with community-based organizations in many of the nation's top hot spots for gun violence. CVG views violence as a public health crisis and trains communities in the public health model to reducing violence. In the Pacific Northwest, CVG is currently involved in a project to mitigate political violence, through a partnership with the Department of Human Services. CVG also works in Latin America, across more than 100 sites in Mexico, Colombia, Trinidad/Tobago and in Honduras, through its partnership with UNICEF. In the Middle East and North Africa, CVG works with the International Office of Migration in Somalia and community-based partners in Palestine and in mixed cities within the Green Line.

CVG has more than 20 independent evaluations and studies of its efficacy and is one of the very few violence reduction organizations that is evidence-based.
