2023 Summer Safety Strategy
The Mayor’s Office, in tandem with other City of Boston Departments and constituents of the communities most impacted by community violence, will develop a comprehensive community violence prevention, intervention, recovery, and community-building framework. This framework will be implemented during the Summer of 2023, and will roll over into a year-round priority. Our framework aims to acknowledge the root causes and social determinants of violence, while also proactively intervening in conflicts to prevent violence from occurring or escalating. These programs and initiatives represent the work that City departments are currently participating in, while also highlighting the existing gaps in services that we want to address. Centering the safety and well-being of the community, we create pathways to opportunities so that all Bostonians can thrive.
