Description: 

PAVE is a multi-national non-profit that uses art, education and action to shatter the silence of sexual violence. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused. These crimes are extremely prevalent, but shrouded in silence and shame. Every person knows someone who has been affected by sexual assault, but the majority of folks will never even know it! It is up to us to be the voice for everyone who has been silenced by violence!! Join PAVE for its inaugural national walk as a day of solidarity for an empowering conclusion to Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) on Saturday, April 30, 2011. Your donations will help our 35 walkers meet their fundraising goals and help us shatter the silence of sexual violence.
