  • PAVE is a national nonprofit that works both to prevent sexual assault and heal survivors through social advocacy, prevention education, and survivor support.

 

  • PAVE has trained more than 50,000 college students and 2,500 professionals and maintains over 50 chapters and affiliates across the country.
  • PAVE was founded in February 2001 by Angela Rose as a student organization at the University of WI-Madison in response to her own experience of being kidnapped from a shopping mall and sexually assaulted at the age of seventeen. It has since grown into a multi-national 501c3 nonprofit organization.

 

  • PAVE’s work has been featured on many national media outlets including CNN, Today Show, Oprah Winfrey Network and a special edition of 48 Hours on CBS.
