Cities on the Frontline Speaker Series #10 – Urban Violence: Intervening For Equity

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, many North American cities are facing higher rates of violence across the board. On one hand, violence plays the role of a chronic stressor and is linked to systemic and racial inequities that permeate our cities. On the other, it is also an acute shock, a traumatic event from which urban communities must find ways to recover and rebuild, as we've seen in the wake of the wave of mass shootings that have shaken American cities in recent months. In both cases, violence has a direct link to community resilience and to the ability of communities to weather other shocks and stressors.
