National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment (NVEEE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to empower communities and facilitate open communication surrounding increasing levels of bullying, violence, and suicide among students of all ages, ethnicities, and identities.[1][2] The NVEEE family consists of mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters, who are not simply "concerned" about today’s youths, but who have taken the first step in refusing to be bystanders - instead leaders. NVEEE's goal is to prevent bullying and victimization, whether it is by peer-on-peer ignorance, bystanderism, or institutional intolerance.[3]
