Firearms Violence: Exploring the Ripple Effects

As part of a larger study conducted by the Urban Institute on the impact of firearms violence, Engaging Richmond investigated the physical, financial, and emotional toll of gun violence in Richmond, VA. Members of Engaging Richmond conducted 13 qualitative interviews with survivors, service providers, business owners, and an offender and used PhotoVoice to illustrate themes which emerged.
