We see you as an expert and we want the results from SURVIVE to include your perspective! If you are a Black male between the ages of 18 and 24 and you are in one of our recruiting areas, your experiences and input are incredibly valuable to us. If you are a Black female, older than the age of 18 who is a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend, spouse, girlfriend, or significant other of a young Black man ages 18 to 24 who has been victimized by violence your thoughts, opinions, experiences, and input are also incredibly valuable to us.

We aim to: 1) develop an instrument that captures data about the victimization experiences of young Black men, 2) better understand their victimization experiences, and 3) obtain information needed to better inform policy and practice regarding the criminal justice system’s response to the violent victimization of young Black men.
