V-Day’s goal is to have one billion women and their supporters worldwide take a stand to end violence.

    V-Day events at UofL are organized by the Prevention, Education and Advocacy on Campus and in the Community (PEACC). Activities are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted and include:
