About The Lighthouse Project and CAV

lh imageThe Lighthouse is a symbol of permanence and stability. It has endurance enough to withstand the strongest storm. Its majestic presence observes and illuminates that which was once shrouded in darkness. Like the rays of light beaming from the windows of a lighthouse, there is a beacon of hope on the horizon. We can shine the light on sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking. By bringing these issues out of the darkness we are taking a proactive approach on campus and in our community to produce a more nurturing environment for survivors and eliminate any stigma associated with reporting these acts of violence.

Goals of the The Lighthouse Project

Mission of the Northwest Coalition Against Violence:

Goals of the CAV:

1. Engage - The Coalition will engage the campus community by conducting programming to raise awareness.

2. Educate - The Coalition will strive to educate all campus community members about violence issues and the resources available to combat violence.

3. Empower - The Coalition will empower campus community members to make a stand against violence demonstrating that the Northwest campus will not tolerate violence of any kind.

Why do we need programs like these?
