Building on Cities United 2016 report: Violence Trends, Patterns and Consequences for Black Males in America: A Call to Action, this report presents the results of an extensive scan of the research literature relating to violence prevention interventions.  It identifies programs and practices that have proven effecting in reducing violence and violent deaths among African American males. It illustrates that evidence-based interventions exist that can be implemented in our families, schools, places of employment, hospitals and communities. These interventions can prevent violence rather than simply meting out punishment in its wake. In its conclusion, the report offers a summary of its findings and recommendations to help inform local violence prevention efforts across the nation.
