Let's Talk Preventing Violence From The Ground Up

Let's Talk New Mexico THU 8/6, 8a: With federal agents being sent to Albuquerque to fight violent crime as part of Operation Legend, many in the community are pushing back, saying more police officers aren’t what’s needed to make things safer. This week on the call-in show, we’ll look beyond the traditional criminal justice system, and discuss community-led and public health approaches to preventing violence.

We want to hear from you. What resources do you think are most needed to build neighborhoods where violence doesn’t happen? Do you have experience with restorative or transformative justice? What would a safe, equitable community look like? Join the conversation by emailing letstalk@kunm.org or call in during the show at (505) 277-5866. Listen at 89.9FM or stream it live on KUNM.org.
