Welcome to Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment.

PAVE is a 501c3 national nonprofit organization that uses social, educational and legislative tactics to shatter the silence of sexual violence. PAVE's work is based in education and action. We work to stop sexual violence before it starts by challenging cultural norms that encourage violence or ignore the spectrum of sexual abuse. Additionally, PAVE strives to empower victims and survivors by creating an awareness and response to any injustices done to them. Through being both prevention and awareness focused, PAVE is working to end sexual violence on all fronts.

You’re invited to join this important work! Learn more about the issue on our website and how you can personally help shatter the silence of sexual violence.
