Bull City United

   
Information provided by: Durham System of Care

Street outreach program that works directly with individuals affected by violence and encourages the use of alternative means to resolve conflicts instead of gun violence. Detection and Interruption - Trained violence interrupters and outreach workers aim to prevent shootings by identifying and mediating potentially lethal conflicts in the community and following up to ensure that the conflict does not re-ignite. Behavior Change - Trained outreach workers identify and work with the highest risk individuals, those likely to shoot or be shot, in an effort to help them disengage from violence. These team members work one on one with affected individuals to help them understand the costs of violence, and connect them with resources such as jobs, education, and other necessary services. Changing Community Norms - Bull City United interrupters and outreach workers engage the community to get involved by conveying the message that violence is not normal and violent behavior can be changed. Educational materials and events are used to facilitate behavior change, promote non-violence, and carry messages about the consequences of shootings and killing.
