SAFE Coalition NC began in 2013 as a grassroots effort to promote police accountability. After 2 years of hard work and small victories, our organization officially became a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We chose the acronym SAFE to stand for Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity.

SAFE Coalition NC’s advocates are victims of police and neighborhood violence, concerned residents and allied organizations. We organize not only to promote police accountability, but also for criminal justice reform, the re-enfranchisement of people previously convicted and for an end to community violence. Our goal is to build safe, sustainable communities that are not reliant on government intervention or law enforcement to become united and strong.

We believe that we will win change through leadership development, community dialogue, direct action and grassroots organizing.Paris
