Shatter the Silence of Sexual Violence
In this Issue
Dear Jacki m,
PAVE shatters the silence of sexual violence through social awareness, educational outreach, and legislative efforts. By being both prevention and awareness focused, PAVE works on all fronts to end sexual violence affecting men, women and children throughout the globe.
We use art, education and action to challenge cultural norms that encourage violence and ignore the spectrum of sexual abuse. We create an awareness and response to any injustices victims, survivors and their communities suffer.
You're invited to join this important work - learn more today!
Cecilia Attias Foundation for Women
DIALOGUE FOR ACTION
Cecilia Attias, former First Lady of France, founded the Cecilia Attias Foundation for Women who hosted the first annual international forum dedicated to helping women around the world. It was an invitation only event and Angela Rose, PAVE Founder, was in attendance. The goal of the event was to build a dynamic community of organizations from every continent that champion the cause of women's dignity, equality and well-being. More info
