National Voices for Equality, Education and Enlightenment (NVEEE) established in October 2009, is a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent bullying, violence, and suicide among youth, families and communities through direct service, mentoring and prevention education.

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.
To prevent bullying, violence, and suicide among youth, families and communities through direct service, mentoring and prevention education.
"NVEEE’s vision is to represent a NATION of VOICES by advocating for the prevention of victimization, and envisions EQUALITY in our communities, raised through EDUCATION and awareness, to build a future of ENLIGHTENMENT where youths can live without the fear of persecution".
NVEEE was established to empower communities and facilitate open communication surrounding increasing levels of bullying, violence, and suicide among students of all ages, ethnicities, and identities.
