The Alternatives to Violence Project, started in 1975 at Greenhaven Prison in New York, has spread all across the world. The volunteer-driven program is now active in over 50 countries worldwide. The AVP International website provides coordination and support to this global network. Within the United States, projects are coordinated via the AVP USA website.
AVP-USA’s annual national gathering will be in San Francisco, California this year, May 24-27. The theme is “Embracing Each Other: Transformation into Wholeness.” All the details are available at the avpusaconference.org website.
