COVID-19 Update

To all of our partners and friends, we hope you are well and safe during these uncertain and unprecedented times. The CSPV team is working remotely in the safety of our homes, doing our part to flatten the curve. In continued service and partnership with schools and communities, we are listening and responding to emergent needs and focusing our efforts on supporting collective action to promote healthy development and prevent violence.

To learn more about this philosophy that drives our work, we invite you to read this blog post from our Director, Dr. Beverly Kingston.  We refer you to scientific resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic at our Institute’s Natural Hazards Center.

Stay well and take care of yourself and each other – we are all in this together.

Violence has detrimental impacts on society, dramatically impacting well-being and human potential. We know this can change. Violence can be prevented.
Partner with us to create a world where everyone feels safe by putting what we know works from research into practice.

Act now to create a world where everyone feels safe. Donate to CSPV.

“Billions of people suffer from the effects of violence and this can change. We know what works to prevent violence and create the conditions that support human potential. It is time to ensure this knowledge gets out into the world and put into practice.”
