In September 2010, city representatives from across the country met to advance the UNITY Urban Agenda for Preventing Violence Before it Occurs: Bringing a Multi-Sector Approach to Scale in US Cities. Together, city leaders worked to create a plan for achieving the goals of the UNITY Urban Agenda: investment in cities; support for local planning and implementation; and collaboration across federal, state and local efforts.
Created for the latest UNITY Strategy Convening, An Overview of Outcomes, Findings & Recommendations from the First 5 Years of UNITY provides a context for UNITY's past accomplishments, and includes findings and recommendations for future work.

UNITY is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the CDC's national youth violence prevention initiative, Striving to Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere (STRYVE), and in part by The California Wellness Foundation.
