Survivors of violence
 
Contact Jeffron Boynes: (312) 413-8702 / jboynes@uic.edu

In Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods, gun violence is becoming a common occurrence. What’s been fairly uncommon are conversations about the painful effect of violence on survivors, particularly young men of color. A UIC researcher is looking at the physical, emotional and financial injuries suffered by black, male, violence victims, as a result of assaults, gang violence, hate crimes and other forms of violence — and the sources of support they used for coping. Henrika McCoy, UIC assistant professor of social work, can comment on her study.
