The Anti-Violence, Safety, and Accountability Project (ASAP) exists to end violence in America as soon as possible. ASAP is committed to breaking the cycle of violence from root-to-fruit including dismantling systemic racism, pursuing economic justice, and healing trauma.
Our work will holistically address violence with a particular focus on ending its most heinous forms and supporting those most impacted especially state violence, including police violence and mass incarceration, community violence, including homicide and sexual violence, economic violence, including extraction, inequality, and underinvestment, emotional violence, including abuse and exploitation.
ASAP’s campaign against entrenched violence offers radical compassion to the impacted, just accountability to the perpetrators and enablers of violence, and beloved community to our collaborators.
ASAP recognizes that overcoming violence requires working on multiple levels at once— changing systems at the cultural, economic, and political levels; bridging divides across race, gender, sexuality, and religion; and healing people at the personal, familial, and community levels.

The Anti-Violence, Safety, and Accountability Project (ASAP) works to break the cycle of violence and address its harms by dismantling systemic racism, providing healing to the impacted, and generally offering the insights, platforms, and other tools of justice that communities need to transcend violence.
ASAP refuses to let what has been determine what will be. Instead, we cultivate social-emotional and societal awareness to help people envision a brighter future for themselves and their communities so that the marginalized and written-off can reclaim and realize their potential.
ASAP provides community leaders with the background knowledge, informed action, and tools they need to combat violence from root-to-fruit, with a priority on the most impacted people and communities.
Empathy is the cornerstone of our work, with a collective focus on safeguarding mental health. We prioritize amplifying the voices that have been historically silenced, understanding that racism fuels police violence and working to highlight the intersections of identity within these issues.
ASAP refuses to accept yet another generation of the oppressive institutions and hateful culture that have fostered violence throughout our country’s history and plagued our people, communities, and society at large.
ASAP refuses to allow another generation to suffer police violence, community violence, the school-to-prison pipeline, or the prison-industrial complex.
ASAP refuses to abandon victims of violence to suffer without support as their loss and trauma compounds.
