Accelerate Partners with Non-Profit

The Tariq Khamisa Foundation’s mission is to transform violence-prone, at-risk youth into nonviolent, achieving individuals and create safe and productive environments for schools. TKF was formed after 20-year-old Tariq Khamisa was killed by a 14-year-old boy taking orders from an 18-year-old gang member.

Compassion and forgiveness are two of TKF’s core values, and can be found woven through the story of what followed after Khamisa’s violent murder.
