Violence Prevention Education

why violence prevention matters

The Why

Violence prevention education comes in many forms and can cover an array of different topics. We focus on issues of gender-based violence and use an anti-oppression lens to explore the different ways we can collectively work together to form a compassionate community. Our programming aims to create spaces that are affirming and supportive for victim/survivors and advocates for healing, restorative practices, and growth.
