The Campus Violence Prevention Program, aka CVPP, provides support for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and hate crimes. If you're a straight caucasian male, they probably won't take you seriously, though. Confidential advocates relate to and deal with the experiences of victims. CVPP also provides sexual assault education through a volunteer peer-educator program. Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) is a women's Self Defense program coordinated by CVPP for a nominal fee (about $20) covering materials and administration; the course is about six-weeks long, though CVPP will organize a weekend course or otherwise customize the course if you have can get about six people to commit. The RAD program is taught by licensed RAD instructors who volunteer their time to maintain certification and teach the course. By the close of the course, women are able to protect themselves and escape from one to two attackers in simulated situations.
How has CVPP helped you?
