Ending Gender Based Violence
The Anti.Violence.Project (AVP) is committed to addressing and ending gender-based violence on campus and beyond.
Prevention. Support. Action
We strive to provide anti-oppressive and sex-positive services, advocacy and action on-campus and off to people of all genders, in partnership and collaboration, in order to address and resist gender-based and all forms of violence.
We’re looking for folks to talk back at us about the Sexualized Violence Awareness Week, Let’s get consensual, and the Rethinking Masculinity campaign.
