On January 28, 2013, Marylhurst University and the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence co-convened a Consultation of 25 area leaders from interfaith, civic and non-profit groups whose work relates to the abolition of intimate violence.
SAIV aspires to bring added impetus to the remarkable work already being done in education, prevention, outreach & serivce, by many agencies and individuals in the Portland Metro area (and elsewhere in Oregon) who share a vision of peace in our families and among nations.

SAIV aspires to be the convener for dynamic collaborations in many forms in other cities in the U.S. this year. Efforts in Boston, New York and Portland, Oregon are the first. We hope that you will join with us in our vision of a world free of violence, where Peace begins in our families and in our most intimate relationships.
