Alternative to Violence Program in Prisons

Alternative to Violence Program in Prisons

Since 1975, a program called the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) has been going into prisons to offer non-violence workshops to prisoners with the intent of reducing violence in prisons and steering inmates toward nonviolent practices when they return to society after completing their sentences. Carol Boss talks with two former inmates who each served extended sentences for second degree murder charges. Both feel their lives were transformed with the help of AVP.
