The focus of this year's conference is: "Healing, Safety, and Restorative Justice: System Partnerships for Violence Intervention," as we expand our audience to welcome our partners in the mental health and justice sectors in working towards our common goal of violence intervention. Goals of the conference include:

-Provide a forum to bring together hospital and community-based healthcare, mental health and justice system service providers, policy makers, and researchers with a vested interest in developing and strengthening hospital-based violence intervention programs and cross-sector violence prevention efforts.
-Offer a platform for invited Keynote and Plenary Session speakers who have a vested interest in violence prevention and intervention and have advocated for increased recognition of this vulnerable population and improved access to services.
-Focus on strategies to address the psychological trauma of violence which often goes unaddressed in healthcare settings. This trauma may impede the recovery processes and can increase risk for both re-injury, retaliation and death.
Provide information, feedback and national visibility for a trauma-informed approach that addresses the needs of victims of violence, particularly young males of color.
-Provide a venue for collectively identifying, prioritizing and discussing the trauma-related service barriers affecting youth victims of violence, particularly young males of color.
-Offer workshops facilitated by the Network's Research, Policy, and Workforce Development Workgroups, which will meet the needs of both program directors, administrators and frontline staff.
