The Alternatives to Violence Board of Directors meets every month on the 2nd Monday at the Loveland Police Department.
Pastels on 5th was founded in 2011 as a benefit for Alternatives to Violence. The event, created by Marcia Moellenberg and Vicky Bryant, was designed to be a “win-win” for Loveland artists, businesses and community members. The Loveland Museum/Gallery, the City of Loveland, Leadership Loveland, and E.L. Events all gave us tremendous support and were instrumental in getting this first year off the ground.
Our first year was an amazing success – the turnout for our inaugural event was more than we could have hoped for! We had over 65 artists/sponsors participate in Pastels and we raised over $10,000 for ATV! We couldn’t believe the response and we were even more stunned when the second year of the event raised over $25,000 and included 85 artists and sponsors.
Community display for Domestic Violence Awareness month at Immanuel Lutheran Church
All of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered womens advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.
Alternatives to Violence has launched its 2nd annual golf tournament fundraising event, FORE Alternatives to Violence, slated for Friday August 16, 2013 at the Olde Course in Loveland.
Poudre Valley Hospital is the event’s Title Sponsor.
Denim Day is held annually on the last Wednesday of April.
This day was created as a prevention and education campaign to bring awareness to one victim's experience. A 1999, court ruling convicting a man of sexual assault was overruled by a Supreme Court stating that "the woman was wearing jeans and they could not have come off without her help". Denim Day was created to honor and support that victim and many others, like this woman, who have experienced victim blaming. All day Alternatives to Violence, we will be wearing jeans and "denim day" pins and we encourage the community to do the same at their schools and places of work. By participating, we hope to send the message that we support victims of violent crimes and the many people who work in the field of victim services. Stop by ATV for a Denim Day pin and/or share our upcoming events through your organizations, Facebook and people who care.
