Gathering Website


The next Annual National Gathering will be upon us before we know it! This year, travel to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. Join AVPers from across the country next Memorial Day Weekend, Thursday May 23rd through Friday, May 31st.

The theme of this year’s Gathering is:  Embracing Each Other: Transformation Into Wholeness.  In planning, we wondered what kind of transformation would support our ability to see ourselves and one another as whole human beings together, recognizing that each one of us is valuable and then valuing one another out of that awareness. We also discussed the influence that age, race, class, gender, and incarceration history have on our organizational structure and processes. MORE

The conference will take place at Mills College, Oakland California.
Mills College is located on a beautiful hillside in East Oakland.  Just minutes away from the Oakland Airport which is the best airport to arrive at if you are flying in.
