The Community Alliance for the Ethical Treatment of Youth, also known as CAFETY, is a member-driven advocacy organization that is run and operated by individuals who were in harmful residential care during their childhood. Their advocacy is done through campaigning, for instance, their 'Care NOT Coercion' Campaign.
Its founder and executive director, Kathryn Whitehead, was a 2013 Echoing Green Fellowship Finalist in the civil and human rights category. She also speaks at conferences and volunteers with the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law and Policy's Leadership 21 Initiative and Court Appointed Special Advocates. CAFETY was also one of the top-rated nonprofits on the organizational review website, Great Non Profits.
