We are partnering with Parents For Peace to offer hope and guidance to those impacted by violent extremism.
Parents for Peace was founded by a father whose son was manipulated into committing an act of terrorism. We aim to translate the pain of parents into a positive way forward, enabling struggling families to break the silence and effectively safeguard their children from the lure of extremist ideologies. The hope is to help families divert loved ones from a path that can lead to violence and heartbreak.
