UNITY City Representatives finalized the Urban Agenda in Spring of 2010. UNITY works with cities around the country who are committed to preventing violence. We collaborate with mayors' offices, departments of health and public health, and other municipal leaders through the UNITY City Network.
The UNITY City Network is a growing network of members committed to:
- Preventing and reducing violence affecting young people
- Promoting and engaging a public health approach to violence
- Sustaining a local planning and implementation process that include multi-sector collaboration
- Developing a plan in each city that focuses on preventing violence.
The Network provides the opportunity for:
- City leaders throughout the United States to work with, share and learn from peers
- Capturing and disseminating best, promising and emerging practices
- Making recommendations, including policy changes to support cities in preventing violence
For cities in the UNITY City Network, UNITY:
- Provides training and consultation services (written, verbal and on-site) on strategic planning, implementation and evaluation for preventing violence, according to the elements of the UNITY RoadMap and other effective strategies and programs
- Assists cities to develop, implement and evaluate plans for preventing violence
- Convenes UNITY City Network meetings
- Highlights the work of UNITY cities in UNITY materials and website and other venues
- Makes recommendations, including new policies based on the work of participating cities
