Gender Violence Prevention & Education
Gender Violence Prevention and Education (GVPE) covers a range of topics from sexual health, pleasure, and consent to harm reduction and active bystander skills. Staffed by a professional staff coordinator, graduate interns, or fellows, GVPE provides active bystander training (Intervene: DU), community education, and prevention outreach on gender-based violence.
We use "gender violence" as an umbrella term to talk about sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and sexual harassment. Anyone can be a victim of gender violence regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, age, class, strength, size, appearance, etc.
Formerly a part of CAPE, GVPE is now a part of the Health Promotion team. If you would like more information about GVPE efforts at DU, please contact Andrea Thyrring at 303-871-7442 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can request an active bystander training or another program here.
