Curtis Sliwa (born March 26, 1954) is an American anti-crime activist, founder and CEO of the Guardian Angels, and a radio talk show host.
In May 1977, Sliwa created the "Magnificent 13", a group dedicated to combating violence and crime on the New York City subways. At the time, the city was experiencing a wave of crime as municipal services were cut back to reduce its debt.
The Magnificent 13 grew and was renamed the Guardian Angels. The group's actions drew strong reactions, both positive and negative, from the police, public officials, residents and the media. Throughout the early 1980s the group's distinctive uniform, a military type red beret and white insignia t-shirt, became recognizable as the group grew and courted media attention.
