InCHIP’s Gun Violence Prevention Research Interest Group (GVP-RIG) is co-directed by Dr. Mary Bernstein, Dr. Jennifer Dineen, and Dr. Kerri Raissian. The GVP-RIG connects scholars and advocates with interests in understanding the correlates, causes, and solutions for firearm violence in America. Our mission is to seek solutions to reduce all forms of gun violence (such as suicide, community gun violence, mass shootings, accidental shootings, gun violence related to intimate partner violence, officer-involved shootings) and to better understand how solutions may or may not vary based on the setting (e.g., home, community, school, urban/suburban/rural areas). We connect scholars with each other and with resources to enhance the quality and scope of our research. Reducing gun violence in America is an urgent public health crisis that will require our collective expertise.
