    What is MVP?

    MVP gives us the skills to help end violence in our communities by helping us learn how to be effective bystanders. Bystanders can confront, interrupt, or prevent violence.

    The workshop is for the general community, community workers and post-secondary students. It is highly interactive and starts conversations about how we react to issues ranging from bullying to family violence.

    The workshop will give you the chance to develop and practice concrete options you can safely use in a range of situations. It challenges us all to be leaders and proactive bystanders.

    These workshops are funded through a grant provided by the Tasmanian Community Fund to the Hobart Women’s Shelter, Women’s Health Tasmania, Engender Equality and the Women’s Legal Service.
