Thanks to your generous support, we are halfway to our goal of raising $5,000 to Intervene in Gang Violence! Your contributions make all the difference, but do you know how exactly they help? With $5,000, Professor Patton will be able to:
- Hire a research assistant to qualitatively code and analyze social media content
- Purchase data from social media companies (e.g. Twitter) for data analysis
Having more data and more help analyzing this data will help expand the reach and scope of Professor Patton's project. And that means developing more sophisticated diagnostic tools that will prevent violence and save lives. Thank you for supporting this mission. Please continue to spread the word—on social media and other channels— about this timely project. Contributions are accepted through September 4th.
