The Violence Project’s co-founders Jillian Peterson and James Densley spoke with Alia Dastagir about how we can combat gun violence.
“We’re acting like these are scary monsters, and they just show up and the best we can do is run faster and hide,” Peterson said. “Our goal is to show the pathway for perpetrators, so we can have real conversations about how we can prevent people earlier on… After you understand something, it alleviates the anxiety because the truth is we can cut this off sooner.”
