Mr. Cunningham talks to Demetria and Erica about the St. Paul based Alternatives To Violence Project (AVP). AVP is a nationwide and worldwide association of volunteer groups offering experiential workshops in conflict resolution, responses to violence, and personal growth. AVP is dedicated to reducing the level of violence in our society. 

Our goal is to reduce the level of violence by introducing people to ways of resolving conflict that reduce their need to resort to violence as the solution. The Alternatives to Violence Project is designed to create successful personal interactions and transform violent situations. 

We're dedicated to teaching the same non-violent skills and techniques that were used by Mohandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We do our training where violence is found. Our workshops target: Prisons, Communities, and Schools
