The Gun Violence Project is an interdisciplinary, university/community collaboration that seeks to make sense of social spaces through the lens of gun violence, with explicit attention to the complex and often unheard or forgotten narratives that participate in shaping spaces. Beginning with Milwaukee, Wisconsin, The Gun Violence Project aims to recover stories and experiences that would otherwise be lost or obfuscated by official narratives. This project will ultimately map oral histories of gun violence through a multi-modal, interactive map.
Share Your Story
Milwaukee is a community that has dealt with a staggering amount of gun violence in recent years. Those affected by these incidents have stories to tell, and we want to hear and help share their stories with the public to help increase awareness and potentially influence policy in the state as well as across the United States.
If you would like to tell your story of gun violence in the Milwaukee area as a part of an on-going research project through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and you are at least 14 years old, we invite you to share your experience. With your consent, your story would be publicly shared as part of The Gun Violence Project, a collaboration between the UWM and Mothers Against Gun Violence.
