Uniting for our youth starts with you.


The Code Red Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has a heart for protecting the youth of our nation. The foundation was created in response to the solutions-based documentary, 'Code Red: Youth of the Nation," which shows us the numerous failures within our systems that are allowing senseless tragedies to plague our schools and what we can do to make our kids’ safer NOW.

Why Code Red?

Because we see the need and we are here to meet it. In response to one of the deadliest active shooter events in high school history, which took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, we have spent the past two and a half years working with federal and local law enforcement, teachers, students, administrators and those who have experienced these tragedies in real time.

During the journey, we've not only identified the failures within our systems, but also the external threats that our kids are facing daily. We've developed the tools and solutions for those Code Red moments, and we're ready for you to help us make them a reality.

Our kids are in CRISIS. Together, we can CHANGE this narrative.
