Facilitating Early Action and Response

We connect communities with tools, training, and advisory support to anticipate rapid response needs and build capacity.

Truly reducing harm and mitigating violence requires frameworks for early action. As a core complement to our Structures for Early Warning project, BDI also facilitates proactive alerts and strategic advising to support in-the-moment response to political violence. Through both our national and state teams, BDI directly connects front-line communities with training, provides verified resources and tools fit for a range of contexts, and advises decision-makers on rapid response needs surfaced directly through our work.

In six high-risk states, BDI State Leads provide even deeper concierge support for early action and response. Learn more >
