Grand Forks, ND—To create a 2 Generation Plan to End Violence that will incorporate community generated ideas, include outcome measures, and identify solutions to test

The Big Idea

Community Violence Intervention Center believes it is possible to end violence against women and children in all its forms, including domestic violence, bullying and dating and sexual violence. The group intends to accomplish this ambitious goal within two generations. Plans to raise awareness will educate the Grand Forks community to shift the culture of acceptance to one of accountability. The project hopes to build a network that equips more therapists in trauma-informed therapies, enhances victim safety and helps more offenders end their violence.
