People new to Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) sometimes feel intimated by the enormity of the subject m — but that’s why we’re here.
Clarion Project’s PVE training program is designed to take the academic research and data and make it accessible to everyday people.
Now, families, teachers and on-the-ground professionals can have the same information as PVE researchers, especially necessary since they are on the frontlines in communities across the nation.
In 2019, we worked hard to break down the subject matter to demystify PVE and make it something everyone can understand and engage with. If you’re new to PVE or want to share this with a friend, here are our top three recommendations to get yourself up to speed:
- READ: The common denominator between every single school shooting in the United States is the lack of a father figure. These are factors we can understand and work to engage with
- LISTEN: What makes someone vulnerable to extremism? What makes one person more vulnerable than the next. In this podcast, we speak with a counselor who specializes in trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression, as these factors impact extremism.
- WATCH: A former neo-Nazi and former jihadi bride talk about how they found their way out of extremism and toward a shared humanity
