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!

5th UN Conference for Women
Take Action to Make it Happen

On Sept. 30, 2009 US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton chaired a meeting with the UN Security Council where a resolution mandating peacekeeping missions to protect women and children from sexual violence during armed conflict was unanimously adopted.
With such momentum the 5th Annual UN World Conference on Women (5WCW) would be the most influential and far-reaching women’s conference ever held. Grassroots activism and political leadership needs to be mobilized or it won’t happen. Learn more and sign a petition
