The Rapid Response effort is led by Ceasefire Case Manager, Dewanda Joseph and others.

  • Ideally neighborhood hubs will be organized throughout the community of Richmond
  • Community members and clergy have been trained to respond within 24 hours of a shooting with the assistance of law enforcement partners and the RPD chaplains
  • This response will include but not be limited to: information and access to resources for the families of the victim and the shooter. There is also an effort by clergy and congregations to assist with the funeral as much as possible i.e. food, hotel, and programs.
