Reports? What’s next?
In 2015, two high-level reports on violence arrived on the desks of Wilmington officials. In March, the Wilmington Public Safety Strategies Commission issued its final report with dozens of recommendations. In November, a long-sequestered report from the Centers for Disease Control addressed “Elevated Rates of Urban Firearm Violence and Opportunities for Prevention” in Wilmington.
This month’s Movement for a Culture of Peace Forum will address both of these reports. We will ask:
- What still needs to be done to implement the high-level research and thinking that went into these important reports?
- What stands in the way?
- And what can the community do?
