TUESDAY JANUARY 30, 2024
This session is a recorded from a closed session, available to CDC RPE and DELTA AHEAD recipients and sub-recipients.
Continuing the conversation started in the web conference, “Greening & Growing” Strategies to Create Protective Environments and Prevent Sexual & Domestic Violence, this web conference will feature DELTA AHEAD recipients Amanda Barratt and Josef Canaria from the Michigan Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, who will share practical tips and lessons learned and answer questions about creating protective environments and strengthening social connectedness by increasing green spaces in rural areas. Dr. Katherine Theall of Tulane University will also share about the Healthy Neighborhoods Project, a strengths-based project in New Orleans to reduce youth and family violence and promote well-being, a sense of community and safety, and civic engagement through cleaning up vacant and abandoned houses and encouraging more equitable neighborhood development and investment. We will also hear from Calla Jamison from CDC, who will share a newly released resource about the essential elements of place-based strategies as well as the Veto Violence Select Adapt Evaluate guide.
