Join us in celebrating the Violence Interrupters and Outreach Workers who risk their lives daily to serve their communities.

The 2021 Cure Violence Global Virtual Gala celebrates over 20 years of creating safer and healthier communities. While we cannot gather in person, we invite you to join us to hear inspiring stories from the Outreach Workers and Violence Interrupters who do this work day in and day out. We will be celebrating all that they do for the neighborhoods they serve, the impact we and our partners are having in communities, and get to know the amazing workers who are responsible for these results.
