ABSTRACT

Strategic Implementation Plan for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States   [open pdf - 0B]

"The President in August 2011 signed the National Strategy for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States (National Strategy for Empowering Local Partners), which outlines our community-based approach and the Federal Government's role in empowering local stakeholders to build resilience against violent extremism. It recognizes that, as the National Security Strategy from May 2010 highlights, 'our best defenses against this threat are well informed and equipped families, local communities, and institutions.' To support our overarching goal of preventing violent extremists and their supporters from inspiring, radicalizing, financing, or recruiting individuals or groups in the United States to commit acts of violence, the Federal Government is focused on three core areas of activity: (1) enhancing engagement with and support to local communities that may be targeted by violent extremists; (2) building government and law enforcement expertise for preventing violent extremism; and (3) countering violent extremist propaganda while promoting our ideals."
