PAVE is a national nonprofit that works both to prevent sexual assault and heal survivors through social advocacy, prevention education, and survivor support. The organization was founded in 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. PAVE empowers students, parents and civic leaders to end sexual violence with prevention education and promoting respect for oneself and each other. It also creates a safe space for survivors to thrive after trauma.
