Main Points on Cure Violence

Violence is contagious - it spreads from one person to another.

Cure Violence works one on one with those most likely to be violent.

Cure Violence is a community-based health approach to violence prevention.

Cure Violence workers can talk people out of being violent. They use their influence to change people's behavior.

The Cure Violence approach has been shown to reduce shootings and killing by 50% or more in some of the most violent communities in the world.

There are currently hundreds of violence interrupters and outreach workers using the Cure Violence approach in more than 25 cities across 10 countries worldwide.
