Policy Focus: Stopping the Epidemic of Violence in American Cities
Patrice Onwuka joins the podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Stopping the Epidemic of Violence in American Cities. We discuss the reasons why several U.S. cities watched murders spike by over 30 percent as well as outline the steps we can take to curb the nationwide violence.
Patrice is a political commentator and director of the Center for Economic Opportunity at Independent Women’s Forum. Patrice is also a senior fellow with The Philanthropy Roundtable and a Tony Blankley Fellow at The Steamboat Institute. She has worked in policy, advocacy, and communications roles in Washington, D.C. for more than a decade on issues related to the economy, employment, technology, and the criminal justice system. Prior to moving to Washington, Patrice served as a speechwriter for a United Nations spokesman.
