ABOUT THE STUDY
Welcome! This study will increase what we know about young Black males and their victimization experiences by developing and pilot testing an instrument that captures such experiences. Black males are disproportionately impacted by violence and it often causes their disability or death. To help change that outcome, we need to learn more by generating, collecting, and analyzing data about violent victimization including: what happens, how often it happens, and how many people are impacted. We aim to: 1) develop an instrument that captures data about the victimization experiences of young Black men, 2) better understand those experiences, and 3) obtain information needed to better inform policy and practice regarding how the criminal justice system responds to young Black men who have been victimized by violence.
Learn. Analyze. Change Outcomes.
