Vera Institute of Justice

Dr. Annette Bailey is an associate professor at the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University, and the associate director for the Ryerson Collaborative Nursing Program. She holds a PhD in public health science.

Dr. Bailey’s research aims to understand the complex and intersecting sociopolitical systems inherent in gun violence proliferation and survivorship. Much of her research sheds light on the traumatic grief experiences of black parents who lose loved children to gun violence, as well as black youth who lose friends and family members to gun violence. She has collaborated with researchers and advocates in Canada and across several countries to establish policy recommendations for gun violence survivors. She has shared policy recommendations in Canadian Parliament and with members of the House of Commons, in her continuous effort to advocate for resources and services for victims and survivors of gun violence.

Dr. Bailey continues to assist community-based organizations to support groups affected by gun violence. She also supports educational programs for youth in marginalized neighborhoods, in an effort to reduce their involvement in violence.
