Thomas Abt - Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence--And a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets

Upcoming Event
Monday, July 1, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Drawing on his extensive experience as a policymaker in the Obama Justice Department and as Deputy Secretary for Public Safety to Governor Cuomo in New York, Abt shows that we have the necessary tools to rid our cities of violence. Proposing a targeted, data-driven approach, Abt argues that we should focus on the “hot spots”—the blocks and corners where most crime takes place—and on the “hot people”—the groups of men who commit the majority of the crimes. By homing in on the violence itself, rather than on the gangs, guns, or drugs, Abt believes we can achieve a 50% drop in homicides over the next decade.
