About Us

SILENCE IS VIOLENCE


The mission of Silence Is Violence is to work toward a safe and equitable New Orleans. We provide direct victim services, creative youth engagement, and public advocacy, working with clients and partners from every sector to achieve safe, just, and thriving communities.


Services include grief support, financial advocacy, and help navigating the Orleans and Jefferson parish criminal justice systems. We assess individual needs of each victim, then summon appropriate resources and attention to each case in coordination with the DA’s office, NOPD, Department of Justice, Crimestoppers, and other local agencies. 


Our primary focus is homicide, but SIV staff members are trained to address any violent crime, including domestic violence and sex crimes. All VAP services are free to victims and victim-survivors.
