Elena Quintana, Ph.D., Executive Director for the Adler University Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice, joined WBEZ’s Reset to continue the program’s “Solutions To Violence” series. Quintana discussed the need to view violence as a public health issue rather than a criminal justice problem, and to invest in communities and human potential.
“We need to turn to the people who are most affected by violence and ask what their communities need,” Quintana said. “And we need to increase the number of effective solutions and invest in communities.”
