Commemorative book released

Two-Generation Guardians: Peacemakers Changing the Face of Violence – for Good commemorates CVIC’s 40th anniversary. This honorary book features a cross section of hundreds of “guardians” who have been instrumental in shaping our long-range violence prevention and intervention efforts, as well as safeguarding the community we all cherish.

“As much as this is a CVIC story, it’s truly a story about the guardians and peacemakers of Grand Forks County and surrounding communities … Enjoy learning about the hopes, the struggles, the gifts, the tools, and first-rate humans who continue to find new and inventive ways to build a safer tomorrow.”

Coiya Tompkins, Author & CVIC President/CEO
