Sexualized violence is a social issue!
We are all responsible to engage in the fight to end sexualized violence.

Sexualized violence — from rape or sexual assault to whistles and street harassment — are not just individual events; they are symptoms of how society treats and views women and trans* people.
Avalon is committed to challenging these root causes of sexual assault through public awareness and community mobilization.
