Criminal Justice Student Organization CeaseFire/Cure Violence Event

CJOCeaseFire

The Loyola Criminal Justice Student Organization will host a discussion with Tio Hardiman, Director of Chicago CeaseFire/Cure Violence on March 11 at 7:00 p.m. in Maguire Hall Room 240.  CeaseFire/Cure Violence seeks to reverse the spread of violence by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control—detection and interruption, identifying individuals involved in transmission, and changing social norms of the communities where it occurs. Operating in some of Chicago's most violent neighborhoods, CeaseFire/Cure Violence uses interrupters -- individuals trained to intervene in potentially violent situations -- to prevent violent situations from occurring.  Tio Hardiman, Director of Chicago CeaseFire/Cure Violence, will discuss the organization and violence in Chicago.  All are welcome to attend what will be a fascinating and informative discussion.
