Join us for the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3)’s Prevention Forum on July 11th to hear from state and city leaders, including Joliet Township Government’s Director of Violence Prevention Keshia Ellis, about how they have sought to prevent targeted violence and terrorism and build resilience.

Presented with the Strong Cities Network and the National League of Cities, panelists will discuss Illinois cities as examples of the unique role of cities in targeted violence and terrorism prevention.

Who Should Attend?

  • State and local elected officials (e.g. mayors, city council members)
  • City managers and staff
  • Community leaders
  • Any skilled and knowledgeable professional who directly or indirectly prevents violence by helping people develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to achieve safe, positive, healthy outcomes

While run and moderated by our multidisciplinary team at CP3, the core of the information will be provided by our panel:

  • Eric Arnold, Program Director of the Illinois School and Campus Safety Program & Co-chair of the Targeted Violence Prevention Subcommittee of the Illinois Homeland Security Advisory Council
  • Katrina Thompson, Mayor, Broadview, Illinois
  • Nancy Rotering, Mayor, City of Highland Park, Illinois
