On April 1, 2016, The Urban Youth Trauma Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Institute for Juvenile Research launched its ‘If Youth Can, then I Can’ Violence Prevention Campaign.
The goals of this campaign are to:
- Raise Awareness about the negative impacts of community violence on youth, families, and entire communities.
- Educate the public about the risk factors and strategies that support resilience in youth, families, and communities.
- Engage youth, families and community members in the process of working together to address the complexities of Community Violence.
We invite you to join our campaign! Take a stand against violence—take the pledge!
