CEASEFIRE: A PROVEN METHOD TO REDUCING GANG VIOLENCE

Results: 45% reduction in shootings, with some neighbourhoods showing reductions of up to 67%. The Chicago Project has been given the highest national level award from the U.S Department of Justice and has been featured in major media outlets across North America.
