PROCEEDS GO TO PAVE (Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment)
PAVE: Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment is a multi-national nonprofit that uses art, education and action to shatter the silence of sexual and domestic violence. PAVE’s initiatives have been implemented in over 50 cities and 3 countries. PAVE's work has been featured on CNN, Today Show, and in TIME.
After the play, PAVE Founder Angela Rose will speak about PAVE's work locally and globally to
shatter the silence of sexual violence.
At the age of 17, Angela was abducted at knifepoint outside a suburban shopping mall. She was assaulted by a repeat sex-offender on parole for murder. Eventually released by her attacker, she then suffered at the hands of authorities who subjected her to scrutiny, blame and additional victimization.
From this tragic story emerged one of the nation’s most passionate and impactful advocates for the prevention of sexual violence. Angela has lobbied for vital laws for victims and has promoted the importance of education on the issues surrounding sexual violence. Her work has been covered on many national media outlets including CNN, The Today Show and in TIME.
