Holiday Greetings from AVP-USA! We are so grateful for your generosity this year and every year in support of the Alternatives to Violence Project. Your contributions are making a big difference in the lives of people all across the country. As you well know, AVP workshops change lives! Here is what one person in prison had to say after he took an AVP training:
“All my life, negativity has been around me. I am negativity. AVP took out the negative and put in the positive. It gave me new avenues to view new alternatives… Before, I saw everyone as a potential enemy. Like most of us here, we came from a war zone. Now I sit back and look at the world in a different way with a different perspective.”
When you make a donation to AVP-USA, you support local volunteer groups in 32 states, inmate facilitators in 109 prisons, training manual revisions, publication and distribution. Because of your support, AVP facilitators all over the country are able to volunteer over 350,480 hours of conflict resolution and non-violence training in our difficult world!
Below, you’ll find a one-page annual report “AVP by the Numbers” and it’s simply astonishing to see all you’ve done!
Please contribute any amount you can to AVP-USA by mail to 1050 Selby Avenue, St. Paul MN 55104, or by credit card online. Thanks so much!
AVP volunteers and those we serve are deeply grateful for your support!
Archer Bunner,President AVP-USA, on behalf of the AVP-USA Board
