Background on Digital Tools for Better Communities
Based on 15 years of experience in building Digital Tools for Better Communities, the Community Life Initiative of the Safe and Healthy Communities Project, supports a 5 prong approach to reducing firearm violence as part of comprehensive Local Area Standard-of-Living community-business-public and media networks. Working in a evidence-based framework for “what works” in practice in urban, rural, suburban, exurban and wilderness areas, and based on consensus on national and state measures for background checks on firearm purchases and limitations on non-personal protection-based and non-hunting-based firearms, Community Life Initiative proposes that the State of Illinois, as well as counties and cities within Illinois adopt a Safe and Healthy Community Response Agenda (including Lifestyle, Insurance and Community Standard of Living Networks in All Communities) for step-by-step reduction in gun violence while strengthening local Digital Age safe and healthy community public, private and congregation and service organization programs. These include 21st Century public safety communications and IMAX-level, and 4 season, Community Planning and Outreach Assemblies, all covered by community and youth media stories on everyday and emergency needs.
As well, Safe & Healthy Communities Projects recommends that the State of Illinois include “initial commitments for safe & healthy community response networks” as part of $1 million non-Federal match required in its March 19 application for over $4 million in Federal funds for Community implementation planning grants for Broadband Public Safety mobile communication, with interoperable connection among all public safety and health parties.
