National Stop the Violence Alliance, Inc.'s (NSTVA) mission is to help heal our communities through the principles of nonviolence. NSTVA is committed to working collaboratively with the community through ministerial outreach, youth programs, collective conferences with law enforcement agencies and public officials, and informational seminars about the effects of drug usage, gang violence, sex education, and about economic uplifting, such as how to ace interviews, how to obtain employment, and how to manage unemployment. It is NSTVA's mission to help end violence across the country and to bring awareness to many illness that are affecting our culture.
National Stop the Violence Alliance, Inc. was created in 1991 by Dr. Stephne' R. Coney in the kitchen of her Camden, New Jersey resident. A native of Camden, Dr. Coney saw how violence and other ailments affected her neighborhood and the citizens within. Violence and gang activity had grown rapid and its effects became much more internal than external. With the teachings of nonviolence seen in the philosophies of Mohandas Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa, Dr. Coney incorporated National Stop the Violence and its immediate mission was to end violence across the country.
