2011 Ending Teen Violence Calendar

Two organizations work to end violence

The Lisa M Tyler Memorial Fund will be working along side Ithaca PAVE (Promoting Awarenss, Victim Empowerment) at this year's Apple Festival at the Ithaca Commons on October 2 & 3, 2010. Our organization will be featuring our Limited Edition 2011 Ending Teen Violence Calendars. These powerful calendars feature and honor twelve teens who were silenced by violence. We have given them their voices with this calendar as well as warning signs of abusive behaviors. Hotlines are also included for our teens who are seeking help from abuse. While Ithaca PAVE founder/president Kali Fallon will be promoting The Binding Project. The Binding Project seeks to unite people across the United States by empowering them to take ownership over zip tie bindings and other forms of restraint often used by perpetrators as a means of control and power. Victims, their loved ones, and other members of the community will choose to take ownership over these bindings symbolically, spiritually and psychologically by participating in The Binding Project. As part of the Project, each participant will write a word that empowers her or him in times of struggle and adversity on a zip tie binding and wear it as a bracelet.
