Why Give?

  • Violence is a public health epidemic.
  • 50% of the world’s children are victims of violence annually.
  • 20% of developed world adults are victims of violence annually.
  • One violent crime occurs every 27 seconds in the U.S.
  • We are all impacted by violent behavior. Behavior is a function of our brains. To prevent violence, we need to research the brain.

Financial support is the catalyst for neuroscientific research to prevent violence and build compassion.
