NoSchoolviolence is an advanced AI-research driven think tank. We believe that school violence and school shootings form a complex system of social, psychological, cultural, and media forces in play at the moment of a school attack. We are committed to reducing school violence by creating actionable tools that parents, teachers, school administrators, school site psychologists and law enforcement use to anticipate violence before it begins. We apply systems thinking, as well as the latest social science theories, to explore, test and deploy data-informed solutions
