WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD VIOLENCE
Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) is a nonprofit organization that creates peaceful solutions to potentially violent conflict. Beginning in an upstate NY prison in 1975, AVP has now spread to over 50 countries around the world. As well as prisons, AVP exists in schools, communities and corporate settings.
This video focuses on AVP within the United States prison system. Experience an AVP workshop behind bars and listen to those whose lives have been transformed by AVP.
