WHO WE ARE
Life After Hate is a leader in the violence intervention community. We are the first nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to helping individuals disengage from violent far-right hate groups and hateful online spaces. Since its founding in 2011, Life After Hate has expanded its services to include family members of individuals who are involved with the violent far right or are disengaging.
ABOUT OUR PROCESS
A central part of our mission is our innovative approach to interventions. Our multidisciplinary team model combines formers and mental health practitioners to help individuals identify what they need to leave hate and violence and set and manage their goals to restore their lives.
WHY IT MATTERS
Our direct-service work combatting violent extremism helps establish a safer and more resilient nation. Individuals who do not disengage from hate groups or hateful online spaces are more likely to commit acts of violence. They are also likely to contribute to a toxic online environment that encourages others to violence.
THIS WORK IS LABOR INTENSIVE
In a recent three-month period, we received 60 requests for services. In that same period, we held more than 250 meetings with our current caseload. This work is labor-intensive, and our clients often benefit from between 12 – 18 months of services.
