Evaluating the Los Angeles Initiatives to Reduce Targeted Violence

Los Angeles is taking on the major challenge of how to reduce targeted violence that arises from hate and bias. Los Angeles is home to prevention programs that emphasize the key roles of community engagement, partnership, and community driven approaches for reducing targeted violence.
