In June 2011 the White House unveiled a new domestic plan to combat violent extremism and radicalization through the empowerment of local and community leadership and a strengthening of community alliances. In line with the Administration’s guidance, and as recommended by the Department of Justice’s 2011 Guidance and Best Practices for countering violent extremism trainings, the Safe Nation Collaborative delivers comprehensive CVE (“Countering Violent Extremism”) trainings with an emphasis on cultural and religious literacy and community partnering, and trains Muslim communities for stronger law enforcement and government partnerships.
