Research on racial & socioeconomic disparities in violence during pandemic
Friday, December 10, 2021, 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM
This webinar is part of a monthly LUNCH & LEARN series by the Joyce Foundation which aims to highlight emerging research on gun violence.
Recent data suggests that interpersonal violence increased to historic levels in many U.S. cities during the coronavirus pandemic in patterns that may have been influenced and exacerbated by underlying disparities. To understand this dynamic further, researchers with the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California, Davis, led by Julia Schleimer, MPH, examined 13 major U.S. cities where the burden of violence was highest in 2020 and studied how disparities discovered that year compared to pre-existing disparities in 2018 and 2019.
This webinar discussion will preview the researchers’ findings alongside observations from those working on the ground in two of the selected cities and examine the implications of these findings on policy and practice.
The Joyce Foundation is a nonpartisan, private foundation that invests in evidence-based public policies and strategies to advance racial equity and economic mobility for the next generation in the Great Lakes region. It promotes safe and just communities through grant making in the areas of gun violence prevention, criminal justice reform and violence intervention.
