What can we do to stop the cycle? @thecrimereport reports on a recent conference hosted by .@NNSCommunities We much appreciated his insights on our \"Government and Evidence-Based Violence Prevention\" panel at our 2019 National Conference!

His acceptance speech was a tribute to his professional-life partner @DavidKennedyNYC #cjreform @JohnJayCollege In his newest book, ?@Abt_Thomas? argues that urban violence is often a driver, rather than an outgrowth, of structural disadvantage. We talked at last week s ?@NNSCommunities? conf about his plan to cut national homicide totals in 1/2 in 8yrs. If you care about addressing gun violence, this is a must-read book by @Abt_Thomas. We can stop the bleeding in our most impacted communities and this excellent book helps show us the way.
