313 - Stopping Gun Violence Before It Starts: How Community-Based Violence Prevention Programs Keep People Safe
Manage episode 292118336 series 2632583
Stopping gun violence requires more than thinking about policies and programs that focus on guns alone. Dr. Shani Buggs, a professor with the Violence Prevention Research Program at UC Davis, talks with Dr. Josh Sharfstein about how community-based violence prevention programs identify those most at risk of being involved in violence and connect them to services that can help them solve problems and stay safe. They also talk about the evidence for these programs and their growing popularity across the country.
