Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC): The Public Health Approach to Violence Prevention

The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC), with funding from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and support from the Mattapan Community Health Center, Boston Police Department, and Boston Centers for Youth and Families, produced the "Our Mattapan. Many Pasts. One Future." violence prevention campaign. Residents and community members involved with BPHC's Violence Intervention and Prevention coalition in Mattapan worked hand-in-hand with city officials to create a powerful public awareness campaign that highlights the impact of violence in the neighborhood. The campaign empowered residents to tell their own stories and to share their thoughts on building an even stronger Mattapan by discouraging gun violence and by breaking stereotypes that sometimes define the neighborhood. The personal stories featured in "Our Mattapan" aim to illustrate the true impact of violence on a community in a way that encourages more people to get involved in violence prevention work.
