AVP: Alternatives To Violence Project

AVP Alternative To Violence ProjectAlternatives to Violence Project is an engaging and transformational community building process created in response to the Attica (prison) uprising by people incarcerated in prisons, Quakers & civil rights leaders.

It is constructed of engaging interactive activities arranged in specific ways to affirm, foster interpersonal skills, share power, build trust, encourage play: invite the life experience and wisdom of each participant forward… which ultimately facilitates a deeply bonded community!

The foundational concept of “Transforming Power,” something we all define for ourselves, opens us to the idea that a power is always available, to transform a moment, a dynamic… or an undervalued a life.
