Public Health Approach to Violence

 

Pivot to Peace Program 

 

Pivot to Peace

 

A hospital based program providing the opportunity for victims of stabbings and gunshot injuries, with the assistance of Case Workers and other community resources, to identify and address the factors in their lives that have put them at risk for violence. The Pivot to Peace program is a collaboration between University of Louisville Hospital, the No More Red Dots program, and Peace Education program. It is an opportunity to turn their lives around and make a change. Participants receive hospital-linked violence intervention and community wraparound case management services, including mental health support and training in nonviolent conflict resolution for participants and family members.

Community Walks

 

Community Walk

 

 “Thou shalt not be a victim, thou shalt not be a perpetrator, but, above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.” - Yehuda Bauer  ​

The purpose of community walks is to end violence by developing unity in the community and build long-lasting relationships within the community. On a regular basis, Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods staff members will convene with partnering Community Based Organizations to pass out promotional materials about events and available resources. If you want to find out more about the next community walk, please contact Maryam Ahmed via our Information Request form and she will connect with you.
