Since their peaks in the 1990s, incarceration and crime rates have reached historic lows. Despite this progress, many American cities, including the nation’s capital, continue to experience high levels of violence. Can research and experience point us to effective strategies? How can federal action support – or impede – interventions by states, cities, and communities?

Join Wesley Lowery (The Washington Post) as we discuss Thomas Abt’s new book, Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence – And a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets, and what communities need from the nation’s policymakers.

Reserve your seat for this vital discussion.
