River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding
Join with us as we continue our work for the establishment of safer communities through partnership and collaboration, embedding best and new practices in existing systems and facilitating cutting edge dialogues, workshops and trainings buoyed by our ongoing commitment to prevent, reduce and heal from violence in all forms.
It is estimated that in the United States alone, the cost of interpersonal violence is over 300 billion dollars per year. Yet, it is largely preventable when a coordinated and strategic approach is taken with community, local and state agencies. The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding takes this very approach, addressing violence with a continuum of prevention and intervention strategies that involve the general public, at-risk populations, and those that are healing from the impact of violence by embedding best and next practices into the complex systems.
