Join this session with Prevention Institute and CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention to learn about and contribute to the Uplifting Contextual and Experiential Evidence project, which seeks to elevate and integrate contextual (i.e., measurable factors in a community) and experiential (i.e., the collective experience and expertise of those who have practiced or lived in a particular setting, or lived experience) evidence alongside the accepted and institutionalized science base. This project builds off of Prevention Institute’s Health Equity in Practice (HEiP) modules to embed health equity and racial justice in community safety work to support local government partners preventing multiple forms of violence. Participants will have an opportunity to engage with and provide feedback on a set of proposed principles and strategies to integrate these forms of evidence into decision-making for funding, strategies, policies, programs, and long-term planning.
