Berklee Student Allies in Anti-Violence Education (SAAVE) is a collective of students seeking knowledge and insight about how to help prevent sexual violence and gender-based harm in the Berklee community and beyond. This group has met bi-weekly throughout the fall semester to discuss various topics including bystander intervention; responding to and supporting victims, survivors, and sufferers of intimate partner violence; domestic violence; language use and cultural norming as it relates to gender violence prevention; and intersectionality of identities. In an effort to share what they have learned with the Berklee community, SAAVE students have put together a showcase that displays practical applications and reflections of what they've learned through their dialogues. The areas of creative focus for this showcase include video production, visual art, and performance art.  

This event is a great opportunity to see the impact of student involvement on gender violence prevention efforts at Berklee. All Berklee and BoCo community members are invited to attend.
