Cure Violence

August 15, 2017 7:37 AM

Please join others for a public screening of the Cure Violence documentary 'The Interrupters' followed by a discussion. This film is recommended for viewers 16+. Please provide your own refreshments.

My schedule only allows me to attend the screening in Fitchburg - so that is where you will find me.

'The Interrupters' is a critically acclaimed 2011 documentary telling the story of three Cure Violence workers who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. It examines a year in which Chicago drew national headlines for violence and murder that plagued the city.

 Cure Violence stops the spread of violence in communities by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control – detecting and interrupting conflicts, identifying and treating the highest risk individuals, and changing social norms – resulting reductions in violence of 40% to 70%.
