Jordan Area Community Council (JACC) will implement a community-owned anti-violence
initiative, “Take a Stand/Cease Fire” that focuses on addressing crime as a public health issue.
The concept will be modeled after the Cure Violence Health Model and will include the same
three components used to reverse epidemic disease outbreaks. 1) Interrupting transmission of
the disease. 2) Reducing the risk of the highest risk. 3) Changing community norms.
