Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment was founded by Angela Rose. Abducted from a shopping mall as a teenanger, Angela funneled her anger into activism by spearheading community action to change laws in Illinois at the age of seventeen. She created PAVE as a student organization in 2001 at UW-Madison and fostered the growth into a multi-national nonprofit.
PAVE educates students across the country about sexual assault prevention. PAVE convened the National Campus Sexual Assault Summit held at Georgetown Law that broadcasted live to over 300 colleges.
PAVE’s work on college campuses led to an invitation to the White House for the launch of the “It’s On Us” campaign and PAVE members were asked to serve on the White House Taskforce to Protect Students from Sexual Assault chaired by Vice President Biden.
PAVE is rolling out a series of prevention education videos featuring high school survivors of sexual assault that can be used in communites across the country.
