Program Goals

  1. Strengthen social cohesion across ideological, racial, generational, and geographic differences

  2. Improve locally-led violence prevention efforts through enhanced collaboration among community members, organizations, institutions, and officials

  3. Raise community awareness of targeted violence threats and increase action to address threats

Program Schedule

All in-person gatherings will feature a workshop and other activities such as small-group discussions, visits with community leaders, a shared meal, and/or a walking tour.  


Uniters will be reimbursed for transportation expenses, in addition to earning a $1,000 fellowship stipend for their participation.

Targeted Violence Prevention Projects

In each county, Uniters will work with a community organization to implement a project that supports the partner's efforts and addresses potential risk factors for targeted violence. Projects might focus on issues such as trauma healing and mental health support, racial divisions and/or tensions, immigrant/ non-immigrant tensions or services, economic and housing issues, and political divisions and/or tensions.

A $10K budget will support each project.

This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships, opportunity number DHS-23-TTP-132-00-01.
