According to the Children’s Defense Fund and the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost nine children and teens die every day from gunfire. L.I.V.E. CINCINNATI, a Hamilton County Juvenile Court initiative, is designed to prevent gun violence and promote safety awareness by teaching children what to do if they encounter a gun. This violence prevention and safety awareness campaign relies on a variety of strategies and approaches to keep childrenand communities safe.
L.I.V.E. CINCINNATI strives to enhance the knowledge and skills of fifth and sixth grade students about the potential risks and consequences if they come in contact with an illegal gun by using a variety of educational activities and experiences that include: music, art, a video, print material, interactive panel presentations and simple actionsteps. Through L.I.V.E. CINCINNATI, Hamilton County Juvenile Court joins forces with parents, children and teens, educators, lawenforcement, prosecutors, parents of murdered children and other public and private partners to keep children and communities safe.
