Oakland

Timeline: 2012-2020

Oakland’s pathway to violence reduction was rooted in procedural justice work, partnership with community leaders, and leadership commitments to change. 

The Results:  A rigorous quasi-experimental evaluation of our work in Oakland by Northeast University found that it:

  • Was the primary driver of an over 50% reduction in shootings and homicides citywide from 2012-2019.
  • Produced the longest sustained reduction in homicides in 50 years
  • Reduced gang-involved shootings by 43%
  • Reduced victimization and re-arrests among highest risk Ceasefire clients compared to control groups.
