CeaseFire is Becoming Cure Violence

I have exciting news to share with you. Thanks to your support, Cure Violence has worked tirelessly for 12 years to stop shootings and killings in cities around the world. By approaching violence as a disease that can be stopped, we charted a new way that uses the same science-based strategies used to fight cholera and AIDS.

Treating violence as a disease is more than a metaphor or a model. It is a movement that changes how people think about violence.

That’s why I am so pleased to announce today that CeaseFire is becoming Cure Violence.

Cure Violence is a movement of people who understand violence is a disease. Together we bring a message of hope that violence can be cured, and a model for putting an end to violence in cities everywhere.

In the coming months, you will be hearing from us about new ways to bring violence prevention to your communities. We also hope to hear from you.

Thank you for your tireless support and belief in us. Together, we will cure violence.

Warm regards,
Gary Slutkin
Founder and Executive Director
