Interrupt Violence: New Interactive Website for The Interrupters

Today we’re launching Interrupt Violence (interruptviolence.com), Kartemquin’s first transmedia project, which will expand the journey of The Interrupters into the persistent violence that plagues American cities.
 
On the new site, users can explore an interactive sequence including background and personal histories of murder victims and communities featured in The Interrupters.
 
By the full launch, additional sections will be created, including:
  • Interactive webisodes paired with Interrupter advice about dealing with crisis, anger, loss, and redemption

  • Community resources (violence prevention, counseling, health, education, etc.) that can have an impact on local families
