A forest is much more than just a couple of trees. It is a coordinated community of diverse trees that interact with one another to ensure strong growth and to build resiliency over time.
In our effort to build a strong, coordinated response in the anti-violence movement, the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence aims to learn from the forest and draw strength from our similarly diverse community of coalition members. We ask that you consider joining as a member and help GROW OUR COLLECTIVE.
