Community Voice

There are different ways for you to get involved to help make our city safer. We need your help. Successful implementation will require the skills and supports of all of Baltimore.

GVRS Flyer Preview

Join us to learn about efforts to address violence in our city and shape ways that everyone can get involved. Baltimore Community Mediation Center (BCMC) will be facilitating community conversations to help inform a Group Violence Reduction Strategy (GVRS). Representatives from the City will also join to discuss various agencies’ commitment to GVRS. 

Food will be provided at each session to ensure proper COVID-19 safety protocols for in-person participants, please RSVP by calling (443) 901-8355.

How will you co-produce public safety?

Director Jackson talks to community members.

Name the Strategy 

How can we co-brand GVRS with a different name so that it attracts the energy, excitement, and attention of everyone needed to make this a shared movement for non-violence? 

Neighborhood and Family Supports 

How can we support the families and neighborhoods most impacted by gun violence? 

Provide Ongoing Input on the Pilot 

Understanding that maintaining trust between the community and GVRS will be crucial in helping to save and heal lives in Baltimore, BCMC will serve as a resource in helping GVRS collect feedback from community members after the western district pilot is launched.

Want to stay involved? Join upcoming Brainstorming Sessions with BCMC. Brainstorming Sessions allow enough time for creative, detailed decision-making, on Naming the Strategy, Neighborhood, and Family Supports and Direct Communications. These sessions will provide opportunities for community members and city leaders to brainstorm ways to make this version of GVRS sustainable and successful.
