Life After Hate (LAH) is the United States’ leader in the violence intervention community. LAH is dedicated to helping individuals disengage from violent extremist hate groups and hateful online spaces. Originally founded in 2011 by former violent extremists, today they are a growing team of community engagement leaders, mental health professionals, social workers, and Formers dedicated to helping individuals disengage from VE. This work is done through licensed social services, peer interventions, public education, research, and outreach.

Life After Hate's crucial work in combating violent extremism is imperative to establish a safer and more resilient nation. Their clients come to them in various stages of disengagement from violent behavior; it can take months or years to completely disengage from VE and reintegrate into society. Through Life After Hate's innovative, proprietary tertiary care process, they assess and track progress at the individual level and aggregate data to identify trends, patterns, and evidence to help measure their success. By interrupting violence committed to advancing political, social, religious, or ideological beliefs, the company can carry out its vision of moving toward a world that allows people to change and contribute to a society without violence.

Life After Hate will accomplish these goals by:
Developing and conducting training and community engagement activities for family, loved ones, community leaders, law enforcement (LEO), and other audiences on the dangers of violent antisemitism and the specific interventions that can be deployed to address them. This includes educational materials, online courses, and explainers to identify signs of violent antisemitism and to understand how to help those in need. Efforts will help communities understand radicalization (early indicators, early engagement, full engagement), explain how to set boundaries and appropriate consequences with loved ones, and the necessity of care.

Expanding Life After Hate’s successful The Daily Former public education platform (website, blog, podcast, counternarrative videos) to include an engagement stream focused exclusively on the threat and impact of violent antisemitism in the United States, while sharing real-life stories from those who have taken accountability for their past acts of antisemitism to inspire others to repudiate the ideology and reform their behaviors.
