Speak Safely NY is an organization focused on violence prevention. Our website offers resources and guidance for helping you talk to friends and loved ones who might be on the path toward extremism. For those at risk of moving toward violence, we offer a highly specialized program that addresses the root causes of hate and violence.

Our program is culturally sensitive and works across a variety of beliefs and ideologies. Prevention starts with helping our participants recognize violence and hate are not solutions. Our specialists empower participants to make positive changes to better their lives.

You can help your friend or loved one by encouraging them to connect with a specialist who can help them move away from hate and violence. We can work with them to build skills and reengage positively.
