Facing the Facts


Facing the Facts


It's a terrifying reality

There has never been a more urgent time to explore and implement progressive solutions toward growing gun violence and other related issues facing today's youth and society.  

In the United States, the death rate from gun homicides is approximately 31 per million people annually. That is the equivalent to 27 deaths almost every day.  In Chicago the homicide rate in 2016 has increased more than 46% over a 12 month period, rapidly approaching 600 deaths for the year.

From a fiscal perspective it is estimated that gun violence costs the American economy annually $229 billion.  Comparatively:

  • 491 Global Fortune 500 companies in 2015 had less annual revenue as the amount spent on gun violence in the United States.  

  • In 2017 the President's Department of Education budget request for FY 2017 was $69.4 billion in discretionary funding.  

Additionally, each gun death costs more than $6 million, and each gun injury requires hospitalization costs above $583,000.  

Cause & Consequence is an organization that speaks to these issues and addresses prevention strategies that assist in making informed and enlightened decisions.  Whether it is a bridge back into mainstream society or it is information to make positive decisions, Cause & Consequence is a ready resource to influence the behavior facing our youth and society.  Our elearning material is designed to educate and to be used as a roadmap in critical decision moments.

About US

In 2016, a group of diverse professionals from law enforcement, information technology, and the education community formed Cause & Consequence. The focus of our organization is to produce and release a series of e-learning modules that address prevention and intervention topics for both youth and adults alike designed to assist in their process of valuable decision making. 

We at Cause & Consequence felt the importance of bringing various entities of backgrounds together to help create solutions to crucial issues of shared interests. By coming together as a team, we hope to provide the necessary learning tools to help improve the cracks of social and emotional fabrics of all who are in need.

Inter-Professional Projects Program (IPRO)

Cause & Consequence is collaborating with Illinois Institute of Technology to design, prototype and demonstrate the viability of an e-learning curriculum that challenges and inspires our youth to think differently about how they make decisions that affect others and themselves in irreversible and profound ways. A valuable outcome will be an e-learning curriculum that has proven effectiveness in causing our youth to stop and think before they act and as a result change their behavior in a positive direction for their family, friends and themselves.

The initial phase of this project is being offered as a social innovation course, Creating an E-Learning Program that Fosters Good Social Judgement & Decision Making by Youth in America, which began Fall 2017.
