OJJDP FY 2012 National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention Expansion Project

Youth and gang violence affects communities—urban, suburban, and rural— across the entire United States.

Young people can be perpetrators, victims, or witnesses to violence.

Some violent acts, such as bullying, can cause as much emotional harm as physical harm.

Other acts, such

as assault, with or without weapons, can lead to serious injury or death.

At the direction of President Obama, the Departments of Justice and Education launched the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention (Forum) to begin a national conversation concerning youth and gang violence, raise awareness, and elevate the issue to national significance.

The project that this solicitation supports seeks to competitively select as many as four new sites to join the Forum’s participating localities of Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, Salinas, and San Jose.

The FY 2012 National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention Expansion Project is authorized by the Department of Justice Authorization Act, 2012, Pub.
