Rebuild Your Community

After a mass violence incident, communities typically respond quickly to address the danger and give practical, financial, and emotional help. Here are four different areas in which community leaders can have impact:

  1. Organize help for victims, survivors, families and others.
  2. Support and guide community activities of remembrance (e.g., planning funerals, memorials and anniversary events).
  3. Manage volunteers and donations of money and material gifts.
  4. Support resilience and recovery in the community.
