About S.W.S

Silent Women Speaking Foundation sole mission is to serve and empower mothers who have lost their children to gun violence and/or other violent acts of crime within our community.  The goal is to provide educational support, social advocacy, and promote healthy productivity, and a positive relationship among community members, leaders, and contributors. 

These mothers are a part of our community and deserve to have a safe voice without a rebuttal. 

Meet the Founder..

Haraka “ Nikki “Carswell created Silent Women Speaking Foundation Inc through my nonprofit organization Youth Giving Back Sports Mentoring Program.

" I found my-self repeatedly growing closer and closer to stories that were related to violence, specifically mothers who had lost their children to gun violence. These stories impacted my life personally. Although I have not lost a child, I am a wife, mother, and a concerned citizen. The Silent Women Speaking Foundation was birthed through a heartfelt hunger to give wounded mothers a reason to use their grief as an avenue to not just thrive, but to empower themselves to live productively while supporting others.
