Life After Hate

Life After Hate

Based on our own powerful narratives of transformation and decades of experience in the extreme far-right, we support schools, community groups, NGOs, and other organizations that have a desire to understand, teach, heal, prevent, and counter racism and violent extremism in their communities.

We are engaged in academic research, with reputable partners, to understand individual-level pathways into and out of extremism.  This understanding enables us to develop strategies and solutions to counter violent extremism in its many forms.

Through our program ExitUSA, we help radicalized individuals disengage from extremist movements and begin the process of deradicalization.  Our own unique experiences position us in the best place possible to understand the challenges and support needed to assist those who want to leave, or who have already left an extremist movement on their own.  We also support community practitioners (counselors, social workers, faith leaders, etc.) and families who are working with individuals who have the desire to change.
