Parents For Peace is a non-governmental public health nonprofit empowering families, friends, and communities to prevent radicalization, violence, and extremism.
Learn about our alliance’s unique work providing communities with practical resources:
Parents for Peace was co-founded by Melvin Bledsoe after his son Carlos was radicalized and committed a deadly act of terrorism on US soil. His goal: no other family should experience the trauma he continues to wrestle with.
Parents For Peace supports families, friends, and communities concerned about someone becoming involved with extremism. We provide guidance and early intervention; raise public awareness; and advocate for effective policy solutions.
We envision a world where young people are strong and resilient during the impressionable and vulnerable stages of growing up. And a world where families and communities are equipped to protect their youth from extremism and radicalization, allowing them to feel safe and become happy, fully functioning members of society.
