Students for Non-Violence

The club was first created in the wake of the tragedy of April 16, 2007, to foster a climate of peace at Virginia Tech and in the community near and far. Over the years it has evolved into a service organization that also explores ways to create positive and caring community, and fostering fellowship with each other.
