Recording Now Available for Webinar on Community-Centered Evaluation in Community Violence Intervention
On September 16, 2021, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Education, and the White House Domestic Policy Council, hosted the fourth webinar in the community violence intervention (CVI) webinar series. A recording of this webinar is now available. During this webinar, leading experts in program evaluation discuss partnerships and evaluation, including process and outcome evaluations, and ways to partner with community members in order to understand whether CVIs are working to reduce violence. In particular, the webinar covers the benefits of community-based participatory research, a community-centered strategy that involves partnering with a researcher in an iterative process of program development and improvement. The webinar also includes information about a wide range of resources for practitioners interested in conducting community-centered evaluations.
