Alternatives To Violence (ATV) is based on training provided by Cure Violence Global, an evidence-based violence reduction model that employs a public health approach to address violent crime. Through their trained violence interrupters and outreach workers, they are able to detect and interrupt potentially violent conflicts through mediation. The violence interrupters and outreach workers identify, assess and treat the highest at risk of committing violent crimes by establishing contacts and relationships. The model’s goal is to change community norms around violence.
