Violence remains at epidemic proportions in the U.S. and in Louisiana, this includes gender-based violence [partner violence, sexual harassment, and assault], community violence and policing, and gun violence. Across Louisiana, we are partnering with key experts and stakeholders to undertake state-wide surveillance of violence, discrimination, and health equity to guide prevention programming and inform public policy for the state and nationally.
