THE STORY:

CeaseFire is a national public health strategy that reduces shootings and killings. In 1995, CeaseFire was established as the primary initiative of the Chicago Project for Violence Prevention at the University of Illinois’ Chicago’s School of Public Health. CeaseFire launched in 2000 in West Garfield Park, one of the most violent communities in Chicago. Within a year, shootings fell by 67 percent. CeaseFire’s model has been replicated more than 18 times in Chicago and throughout Illinois.

The strategy has been adopted by more than 12 sites nationally, and by two sites in Iraq. In September 2012, the national and international training and technical assistance arm rebranded to become Cure Violence with a network of partners replicating or adapting the model. CeaseFire Illinois is recognized as its flagship partner. An independent evaluation sponsored by the US Department of Justice and conducted by Northwestern University concluded that CeaseFire’s intervention led to significant reductions in shootings (between 16 and 34 percent) in five of the seven neighborhoods studied[1].

The mission of CeaseFire Illinois is to: a) work with community and government partners to reduce violence in all forms; and b) help design interventions required to better define what should be included in a community or city anti-violence plan.
