JOIN OUR FIGHT AGAINST VIOLENCE!
We can put an end to violence
During this event, our goal is to learn about how acts of violence are similar to contagious diseases. Violence spreads just like diseases; from person to person. Violence occurs in clusters, affecting everyone just like diseases that cluster and infect everyone. So, if violence spreads like diseases, it can also be cured and reversed like diseases. Epidemics are reversed by interrupting transmission, and violence can also be interrupted. People who intrude into violence are called "Violence Interrupters"
our goal is to find people who would volunteer as Violence Interrupters and join our campaign so we can eliminate violence as much as we can.
Our Guest Speaker, Mr. Gary Slutkin will tell us more about violence as a disease and what to do as a violence interrupter.
