Information about the NMVVRC National Town Hall Series


The quarterly National Town Halls sponsored by the NMVVRC, with support from the Office for Victims of Crime, provide the best, evidence-based mass violence readiness, response and resiliency/recovery resources and practices for:

  • Mass violence victims and survivors
  • Victim/ survivor assistance professionals
  • Mental and behavioral health professionals
  • Law enforcement and criminal justice officials
  • Allied professionals


Our goal is to establish an ongoing exchange of ideas about best practices, “lessons learned,” and experiences that can improve a community's coordinated response to mass violence incidents.  To view the information shared in our prior Town Halls, please click here for Town Hall #1, click here for Town Hall #2, and click here for Town Hall #3 and click here for Town Hall #4.
