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 our work, consent training, Sexualized Violence Awareness Week, Let’s get consensual, and the Rethinking Masculinity campaign.
