DHS Holds First Targeted Violence Prevention Symposium

Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships draws 200 representatives to terrorism prevention meetings.

The Department of Homeland Security hosted its first Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grantee symposium earlier this month. The 73 grantees and partner organizations dedicated to the prevention of terrorism sent more than 200 representatives to the symposium, hosted by the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3). There they fostered professional connections and learned about the resources that Homeland Security has allocated to cultivate terrorism prevention.

“Our Department is fundamentally one of partnerships. Through CP3 we support our partners and stakeholders in their efforts to prevent targeted violence and terrorism in their communities,” said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. “DHS is committed to bolstering our partners’ capacity to identify potential risks and prevent tragedies.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Mayorkas to look to the Lord for wisdom to lead his department.
  • For DHS officials as they seek to prevent terrorism and violence.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished through the outcome of the symposium.
