Education & Prevention Outreach

Our goal is to address the root causes of violence in our community by first and foremost promoting anti-oppression, non-violence, unity, social justice, self-determination and liberation of historically oppressed groups through a process of grassroots based community education and leadership development; providing tools to oppressed groups to build power; and by creating movement for community change.
