Rise Up Against Violence
In our Center’s 43 years serving NYC communities with anti-violence programming, we've never experienced the number or urgency of calls that we have in the past year. Your support will bolster CAE's UpStander initiative – people and communities across the five boroughs rising up to interrupt and prevent violence and hate crimes. We are working to counter increased xenophobia, racism, gender-based violence, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia and anti-semitism in subways, schools, and streets.
Help us train UpStanders from 9-99 years old build strength in communities who need it most. With your help, we can provide customized, safe, and effective tools for de-escalation, anti-bullying, physical self-defense, and community organizing.
Ten for Ten (October 23rd-November 1st) is our annual grassroots fundraising campaign to mobilize friends, family, and social networks in ten days. The idea is simple: If each of us asks 10 of our friends to give $10 within 10 days, we can surpass our goal of $50,000.
Join us. Take a stand. Let’s help New York’s most marginalized communities and their allies say no to violence and hate.
