Joseph Marshall

Ashoka Fellow
San Francisco, United States
Fellow Since 2004
My work: To end violence in the US by treating violence as a communicable disease.


This profile was prepared when Joseph Marshall was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
In a small urban laboratory in San Francisco's Mission district, Joseph Marshall discovered a cure for the communicable disease that is the number one cause of death for Americans between the ages of 10 and 24: violence. Dr. Marshall has turned his cure, the "Street Soldiers methodology," into a movement to end violence throughout the United States.
