IPR's Northwestern Neighborhood & Network Initiative (N3) invites you to its 2021 Symposium held online and in person:

Advancing the Science and Practice of Street Outreach: Lessons Learned and the Future of Street Outreach in Illinois

As the country wrestles with a rise in gun violence and urgent calls to rely less on harsh criminal justice strategies to reduce crime, street outreach is becoming an increasingly central violence prevention strategy. This symposium highlights emerging research on outreach, featuring the work of local experts who are building the infrastructure to strengthen the field.

Chris Patterson, Assistant Secretary for Violence Prevention, will deliver opening remarks, and N3 Co-Director and Professor Andrew Papachristos will present recent N3 research. More information on speakers is coming soon.

The event is free of charge, but registration is required for all attendees.
