Why Violence Prevention?
Because violence impacts the quality of life for every Orange County resident. Violence is the threatened or actual use of physical force or power against another person, against oneself, or against a group or community that either results in, or has a high likelihood of resulting in, injury, death, or deprivation.
Tragedy in Seal Beach 10/12/11
On behalf of the Violence Prevention Coalition of Orange County, I extend our deepest sympathy to the victims, family and community members who suffered from the tragic shooting rampage in Seal Beach. We are all diminished by violence and we pledge to honor the memory of those lost to violence by continuing in our efforts in the mobilization of Orange County residents through education regarding those factors that contribute to violence and by advocating violence prevention strategies to break the cycle of violence within individuals, families, neighborhoods, and the community as a whole.
