Geographies of Risk and Resilience

Use our tools to map the risk of political violence and connect with groups working to mitigate it.

Through real-time monitoring and data analysis, BDI tracks geographic trends around the United States to identify emerging hotspots and help partners focus their attention and resources. With evidence-based insights, produced on a timeline to meet the needs of community leaders and decision-makers, our tools capture risk factors but also map response capacity (or resilience). Our mixed methods approach pairs county- and community-level analysis of available data with rigorous qualitative research to draw out complex conflict mechanisms. These mapping tools enable you to:

  • Identify hotspots through dynamic analysis of high-risk geographies
  • Allocate resources and assess response capacity
  • Connect with organizations and resources to mitigate risk

Mapping Tools

Building Resilience Ecosystem Map

Explore data on demonstrations and political violence in your area and connect with groups working to mitigate risk and build resilience.

TRHT Support Map and NCHE Map

Find Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) member organizations, transitional justice initiatives, and congressional cosponsors of H.Con. Res.19 and/or H.R.40.

De-Escalation Directory 

Connect with organizations that provide de-escalation, bystander intervention, conflict resolution, and community safety training in your state, as well as those offering virtual or nationwide programs.

Watch for Expanded Coverage

In the coming months and years, BDI will continue broadening access to our County-Level Risk Index and modeling participatory case studies that elevate community knowledge. We will also integrate our interactive mapping tools into a new Layers of Resilience visual and data effort for practitioners and researchers seeking to understand the response ecosystem in detail.

Because BDI collects and monitors sensitive information on political violence risk in real time, not all data and analysis is made publicly available on our website. If your situation requires further resources that are not listed here, please contact us at [email protected] to see how we can help.
