Over 600,000 people around the world are killed in intentional homicide or in a violent conflict. Approximately one third of women globally have experienced sexual violence (WHO, 2017). Frequent mass shootings in the United States regularly shake the public. Aside from the tragic loss of human life, violence has lasting negative consequences on communities worldwide. This challenge addresses global expressions of violence to promote peace and security for all.
