To help inform the Langeloth Foundation’s exploration of community responses to chronic exposure to violence, Frontline conducted a series of five symposia over the course of five months throughout the US. Each cross-disciplinary conversation focused on a core issue to gain a better understanding of asset-based community responses to persistent violence. The conversations also explored what helps and hinders communities from effectively meeting the challenges of serial disruptive violence. Participants included academics and scholars, lawyers and advocates, teachers and social workers, police and law enforcement, community groups, and philanthropic leaders. Frontline worked collaboratively with a local partner in each meeting to develop the aims, content, preparatory materials, guest list, and agenda for the discussion.
