The cities that are successful in reducing crime are the ones that take comprehensive approaches. Yesterday, Vision Philadelphia released “Eight Hard Truths about Violence for Philadelphia” which provides comprehensive insights about tackling community violence in Philadelphia for the next mayor and city leadership. Co-authored by the team at University of Pennsylvania Crime and Justice Policy Lab, the paper lays out research-based approaches to gun violence experienced across our communities.

The Vision Philadelphia series was developed by a group of Philadelphia-based philanthropic organizations unified behind a desire for a brighter future. Thought leaders explore promising solutions to improve city services and quality of life for all.
