Mentors in Violence Prevention
Gender Violence Prevention Education & Leadership Training
MVP utilizes a creative "bystander" approach to gender violence and bullying prevention. It focuses on young men not as perpetrators or potential perpetrators, but as empowered bystanders who can confront abusive peers – and support abused ones. It focuses on young women not as victims or potential targets of harassment, rape and abuse, but as empowered bystanders who can support abused peers - and confront abusive ones. In this model, a "bystander" is defined as a family member, friend, classmate, teammate, coworker– anyone who is imbedded in a family, school, social, or professional relationship with someone who might in some way be abusive, or experiencing abuse.

Presented by the Politics Department as part of the weekly film screening for Politics 101.
"Why We Fight" explores a half century of US foreign policy from World War II to the Iraq War, revealing how, as Dwight Eisenhower had warned in his 1961 Farewell Address, political and corporate interests have become alarmingly entangled in the business of war.
"Zoned for Slavery" portrays the lives of working youth, mostly teenage girls in the free trade zones of Central America: deprived of an education, deprived of a future, and producing goods for the US market at 5-10% of US wages.
"Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices" examines the impact of Wal-Mart on American Society, taking viewers behind the glitz and into the real lives of workesr and their families, business owners, and their communities.
