Founded by a father whose son committed an act of terrorism, Parents for Peace is an alliance made up of families whose loved ones were recruited into extremism; former extremists; survivors of extremist violence; and others who support our mission. We aim to translate pain into a positive way forward, sharing our experiences to encourage people struggling with a loved one’s potential involvement in extremism to reach out and find help.
Parents for Peace is an alliance of families impacted by extremism and supporters who work together to:
Reduce stigma for those affected by extremism and enable them to speak out
Provide support to people concerned that a loved one may be involved in extremism
Increase awareness of the danger extremism poses to vulnerable youth.
Connect diverse partners to develop effective counter-extremism solutions
