Urban Violence. September 2019. Baltimore, MD.


Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence
Date: September 10, 2019, 5:30-7:00pm
Location: Sheldon Hall (W1214), 615 N. Wolfe Street, Baltimore, Maryland


The 21st Century Cities Initiative and the Urban Health Institute at Johns Hopkins welcome Thomas Abt for a discussion of his new book Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence – and a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets. Urban violence is one of the most divisive and allegedly intractable issues of our time. But as Harvard scholar Thomas Abt shows in Bleeding Out, we actually possess all the tools necessary to stem violence in our cities. Coupling the latest social science with firsthand experience as a crime-fighter, Abt proposes a relentless focus on violence itself — not drugs, gangs, or guns.
