Since 2007, Safe Streets has been Baltimore’s flagship gun violence reduction program. Founded in 2000 by epidemiologist Dr. Gary Slutkin, Cure Violence is a public health approach that uses trusted messengers in the community to interrupt the transmission of violence. Violence interrupters spread anti-violence messages and encourage positive changes in individual behavior as well as community norms around violence. In 2007, the Cure Violence model pioneered in Chicago came to McElderry Park in East Baltimore.  Find out more about the Safe Streets Program and its effectiveness at reducing violence at monse.baltimorecity.gov/safe-streets-new

During the summer months, Safe Streets sites will host events, activities, and resources for Baltimore residents to promote peace and public safety across neighborhoods.
