ABSTRACT

How COVID-19 Has Increased the Need for Street Outreach Work   [open html - 0B]

From the Summary: "While many cities have reported drops in overall crime rates during the coronavirus pandemic and related stay-at-home orders, gun violence continues to persist in cities across the country. According to an analysis conducted by 'The Trace', between March 1 and April 19 of this year, more than 2,000 deaths attributed to gun violence took place in the United States, a 6 percent increase from 2019. Street outreach organizations have long been at the front lines of gun violence prevention work in our cities and are now battling two pandemics at once, as they also assume the role and face the challenges of being frontline public health workers."
